Abstract Activities and production among Inupiaq peoples were primarily divided by gender. This gendered division of labor also extended to a spatial segregated pattern of the household in some Arctic cultures, while others had a gender-integrated spatial pattern. There are very few archaeological studies of gender, or studies of gendered space, in the Arctic. We study gendered use of space in pre-colonial Northwest Alaska through a spatial analysis of ceramic, and other gendered artifact, distr...

ABSTRACTFor a century, archaeologists have puzzled over the enigma of successful whaling unfolding with no predecessors prior to the last two millennia. The emergence of social complexity is linked...

Abstract Magnetic survey methods have recently shown tremendous potential for the detection of archaeological hearths in Eastern Beringia, ranging from intermittent open-air camp fires to larger heat intensive activity areas. Here we present an overview of the method along with eight supporting case studies from seven U.S. National Park Service units in the U.S. state of Alaska, covering diverse geographic settings and time-periods. Together, these case studies demonstrate the capabilities of ma...

Abstract Beach ridges and spits along the north-facing coast of the Chukchi Sea record paleo-storm history during the 1st millennium AD, correlative with a widespread global cooling climate episode. Northwest Alaska is a sensitive proxy owing to its absence of tectonism, glacio-isostasy, and a low rate of eustatic sea level rise. Four locales provide a regional transect and detailed chronologies: north-facing Deering and Cape Espenberg and west-facing Kotzebue and southwest facing Point Barrow. ...

During a 9-week field season in 2016 at Cape Espenberg, excavations of two driftwood houses including one with human remains were conducted in collaboration with Shishmaref community representatives. Implementation of field conservation procedures helped stabilize organic artifacts upon excavation, while experiments with seal oil and wood-fed fires tested hypotheses on fuel use and hearth function. Past landscapes were investigated by refining the local sea level change chronology to define beac...
