A group of archaeologists has spent the month digging up parts of Maine's past. 

They've found hundreds of artifacts including animals' bones, shoes buckles, and dishes. Some of the most recent findings date back more than two hundred years.

The group is digging there because the state's department of transportation is lowering the river road in that area to improve safety.

Later this year they found the remnants of a fort built during the mid 17-hundreds.

The artifacts are expected to be taken to the Maine State Museum.
