AUGUSTA — Volunteers with a little time and who don’t mind getting their hands dirty are needed at one of Maine’s historic sites.

The Bureau of Parks and Lands says a week-long, annual archaeological dig will be held next week at Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site in New Harbor. Volunteers will dig for historic artifacts associated with a colonial fishing village.

Park Historian Tom Desjardin says the site’s within a few yards of where Native American remains and all kinds of artifacts have been found.

The dig will take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday, July 18-23.
