GRAY — For much of the day on Saturday, July 20, and on Sunday, July 21, until noon, The Ancient Ones, a Maine living history group in full period dress, will set up a real living history camp from the late 1700s and 1800s.

The exhibit will feature a large period canvas tent and keep a variety of demonstrations going on all day long, including fire starting, cooking, trading, tomahawk throwing, flint knapping, flintlock muskets, weaving and the like.

See what day-to-day life in Maine really looked like 200 years ago. There will be many photo opportunities and the option to try several of the activities.
