Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Aigner and Del Bene use data from Anangula to help understand 'the peopling of the New World and the development of maritime adaptations in the Asiatic-New World coastal zone,' [page 36]. They discuss some of the geological and geographical features of Beringia. They explore the data from Anangula to answer questions about the duration of the occupation at the site and the nature of that occupation (that it was a maritime village), and how the settlement was organized. Aigner and Del Bene also provide the preliminary results of their microwear analysis to discuss how the stone tools were used.
