significance but the weir marks the first time a wooden artifact has been found perfectly preserved said Dr James Peterson of the University of Maine at armington The weir belonged to Archaic Indians who hunted and trapped animals and fished on rivers lakes and oceans They were known to have a variety of stone tools such as axes chisels and hammers have all found stone tools before but no one has ever found what the tools were used on These stakes tell the other half of the story" Peterson said The stakes which carbon dating found to have existed about 150 AD were mapped a year ago Peterson
