Summary

Geospatial analyses on dated sites across central Alaska suggest important subsistence changes occurred in the region between 4000-2000 years ago. A significant shift from a general foraging strategy to a targeted collecting strategy appears to have occurred during this time, and recent investigations at two archaeological sites dating to this period have begun to shed light on the timing and extent of this subsistence shift in a specific region of central Alaska.
