Alaskan ArchaeofaunasThe Alaskan Archaefaunas data derive almost exclusively from Late Holocene archaeological sites, with a few paleontological sites and older archaeological sites included here and there. Thus far, the sites are primarily from coastal settings, with comprehensive coverage of the Aleutian Islands, the Alaska Peninsula, Kodiak, and the northern Gulf of Alaska (see map of coverage). We eventually plan to add data from throughout the state.
The Alaskan Archaefaunas group is headed by Dr. Mike Etnier, at Western Washington University (WWU). The original work was funded by the National Park Service (NPS) through a Cooperative Agreement between NPS and WWU.
