Abstract: Anderson surveyed and excavated sites along the Noatak River drainage. The sites date from about 10,000 B.P. to the present. Anderson notes that most of the sites found, '...were mainly chipping stations on chert outcrops or near rivers with chert deposits. Most of the sites likely served as caribou lookouts, providing panoramic views of known caribou migrations routes.' (page 66). Only the archaeological data pertaining to the Late Tundra period were indexed for Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM) codes. The reader is advised to use caution when reading this material as it is not always clear which materials are Late Tundra.
