Investigating Paleoindian Culture in the Yukon
Volunteers and field school students will have the opportunity this summer to participate in ongoing investigations of the Paleoindian presence in the Yukon Territory. Artifacts discovered at the Little John site, where excavations will be conducted, have been dated to 11,000 B.P. Under the instruction of Dr. David Yesner of the University of Alaska and Norman Easton, Principal Investigator, volunteers will be working along with youth and representatives of the White River First Nation of Beaver Creek, Yukon.
Field school students will receive training in excavation, survey, and laboratory techniques as they apply to Paleoindian sites. Lectures will also be given in lithic analysis, faunal analysis, and geoarchaeology.
