CASTINE РPeruvian objects and pottery will be the highlight of the ongoing inventory process at the Wilson Museum this week. Dr. Daniel H. Sandweiss, Dean of the Graduate School and Professor of Anthropology from the University of Maine will visit from 1-4pm on Thursday, July 8th  for an informal and informational exchange with visitors. As an archaeologist who has studied late pre-historic sites in Peru, Dr. Sandweiss will add background and context to the rare Peruvian objects and pottery in the Museum’s collection. This will be a great hands-on opportunity to learn more about the Peruvian objects on exhibit as well as the people who created them.
