POSTED: 01/7/14 2:13 AM

St. Maarten – Over the Christmas vacation, several St. Maarten Archaeological Center (Simarc) students and director Dr. Jay Haviser, participated in a limited archaeological test excavation at Simpson Bay. A few years ago, property owner Alan Peterson, found artifacts deep in the ground while digging a cistern. The Simarc students used the holiday vacation and took a couple of days to dig a test excavation at the location, to acquire a sample for analysis. They recovered some historical artifacts in the excavation that the students will now examine at the Simarc lab in Madame Estate. The Peterson family made a very important contribution to the research by allowing the excavation to be conducted.The results will contribute to a better understanding of the history of Simpson Bay.
