New Hampshire’s coastal towns form a microcosm of forces which shaped the evolution of New England. As elsewhere, geography determined land use on the Seacoast. Here you can visit pre-historic sites from the Woodland Period (2500-400 B.C.) in Rye; or learn of the Native Americans in Winnacunet, now called Hampton. The Hampton area, a coastal plain, offered self-sufficiency through fishing.
