The Great Bay Archaeological Survey (GBAS) is a community-engaged archaeological exploration of social and environmental change during early colonialism (ca.1600-1750 AD) in the Great Bay Estuary. Great Bay is one of the most complex and recessed estuaries on the Atlantic Ocean and it formed an important northern frontier during early colonialism. GBAS’s fieldwork is helping bring forward dynamic and overlooked stories of what it meant to live here through colonial encounter.
