If you have not yet made it to the Discover Center in Portsmouth, I highly recommend going for the Under the Isles of Shoals exhibit! I believe it is up until the end of August. It is a truly wonderful exhibit highlighting the exciting artifacts and discoveries they have uncovered at Smuttynose Island over the past five years, directed by Nathan Hamilton.
This spring they also began a small dig on Star Island, and we now have some artifacts on display in the Thaxter museum portion of Vaughn Cottage. You’re warmly invited to come see it as well.
