Faunal Analysis of the Village Site, Healy Lake, Central Alaska

Author(s): Hilary Hilmer; Ben A. Potter

Year: 2017


Healy Lake Village Site, an important multicomponent site with occupations spanning the terminal Pleistocene and Holocene provides an important opportunity to address fundamental issues of subarctic hunter-gatherer economies as they changed through time. To date, there are only a limited number of sites in former Beringia with preserved faunal remains. This poster presents zooarchaeological analyses and interpretations from well-preserved mammal, bird, and fish remains addressing current questions of economic change in eastern Beringia (and the western Subarctic) from the earliest Americans to recent Athabaskans.
