Anangula Island, Alaska, USA

Quick Reference


Cliff‐top coastal settlement site of Palaeo‐Arctic communities on an islet off the coast of Umnak Island in the eastern Aleutians. The site was occupied from before 7000 bc down to c.5000 bc. There were traces of elliptical houses partially dug into the ground. The economy probably relied on sea mammals and fish, although little of the tool assemblage recovered appears to have been designed for such use.
