HOLDERNESS, N.H. (AP) - An annual archaeology field school held in New Hampshire is focusing on an area near Squam Lake this summer.

The Citizen reports (https://bit.ly/1NM8yT7) Richard Boisvert, state archaeologist, says the area in Holderness could have been used by Native Americans upwards of 4,000 years ago.

Boisvert said he may find debris left over from maintaining and making stone tools, as well as broken tools that were left behind. He also the group also stands a good chance at finding prehistoric pottery made from up to 3,000 years ago until the Europeans brought metal pots.

Boisvert has been running the field school since 1988.
