Record #195259:

Persistence and change in Thule wood use, AD 1100-1450 / Claire Alix.

Title: Persistence and change in Thule wood use, AD 1100-1450 / Claire Alix.
Author(s): Alix, Claire.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: Salt Lake City, UT: University of Utah
In: Northern world, AD 900-1400. (2009.),
Abstract: Presents Early and Classic Thule use of wood in western and eastern Arctic. Analysis of wood remains from Thule sites through North American Arctic show persistent use of spruce to make everyday items. Oral history interviews conducted in south-western Alaska reveal that people identified different types of spruce that would be selected depending on what was being made. In eastern Arctic, Thule populations were faced with slower driftwood renewal and longer distances to timber sources. Analysis shows that they made use of more abundant larch wood, properties of which they already knew.
