In the summer of 2009, a group of archaeologists from the National Park Service (Gates of the Arctic) and the University of Alaska Museum of the North, visited Macharak Lake in the Brooks Range. This particular site was dated to the Denbigh Flint Complex of approximately 5000 years ago. This seasonal site contains very well preserved faunal remains; rare for a site this old located in acidic soil.
Fortunately, the folks at Frontier Scientists tagged along to record our finds and showcase to the public what Alaska archaeologists face while working in the far north.
Below are the videos that were created and produced by Frontier Scientists:
