The Amaknak Bridge site: cultural change and the Neoglacial in the eastern Aleutians / Richard A. Knecht, Richard S. David.

Title: The Amaknak Bridge site: cultural change and the Neoglacial in the eastern Aleutians / Richard A. Knecht, Richard S. David.
Author(s): Knecht, Richard A.
David, Richard S.
Date: 2008.
In: Arctic Anthropology. (2008.), Vol. 45(1) (2008)
Abstract: Discusses evidence from series of excavations in Unalaska Bay indicating that onset of Neoglacial had begun to alter cultural and natural landscape of Aleutian Islands as early as 4500 rcybp. By 3500 rcybp deep semi-subterranean houses with stone walls and elaborate hearth systems were constructed at Margaret Bay site. Nearby Amaknak Bridge site was occupied between 3300-2700 rcybp and faunal data reveal significant increase in extent and duration of ice in Bering Sea.
