Author(s): E. James Dixon

Year: 1985


This report includes a reanalysis of key central interior Alaska archaeological sites and analysis of data from recently discovered sites that were used to define the cultural chronology of the central interior Alaska. Diagnostic material cultural elements, with the exception of those for the Euroamerican tradition, were identified and illustrated within this report. Additionally, six cultural traditions and complexes were documented: 1) Chindadn complex (greater than 11,000- c. 10,600 B. P.). 2) American Paleoarctic tradition (c. 10,600-5000 B.P.), 3) Northern Archaic tradition (c. 5000-3500 B.P.), 4) Late Denali complex (c. 3500-1500 B.P.), 5) Athapaskan tradition (c. 1500-100 B.P.), 6) Euroamerican tradition (c. 100 B. P.-present).
