Bifaces, Burned Bone, and Other Finds from the 2018 Central Alaskan Field Season - AND - Settlement patterns in Albania from the Iron Age through Greek colonization and Roman integration (1100 BC - AD 395)

Bree Doering (Doctoral Candidate, Dept. of Anthropology, University of Michigan) and Erina Baci (Doctoral Student, Dept. of Anthropology, University of Michigan)
Thursday, September 27, 2018
12:00-1:00 PM

Ph.D. Candidate Bree Doering will share the results from her third season of excavations in Central Alaska, including material correlates related to the late Holocene behavioral transition among western subarctic Athabaskans. 2018 excavation results from three dated archaeological sites spanning the Holocene provide new insights on subsistence economy and mobility within the middle Tanana Valley. This brief presentation will contextualize these new data within the broader scope of the late Holocene transition that took place in central Alaska and the Yukon Territory.

First-year PhD student Erina Baci will share the results of her master's thesis, a GIS-based settlement pattern analysis completed in 2018 at Mississippi State University. The Illyrians were an Indo-European group of people who once inhabited a large expanse of the western Balkans. As interactions with the Greeks and, later, the Romans increased, the traditional way of life and sociopolitical organization of the Illyrians were undoubtedly altered. Her thesis takes a geospatial approach in order to address how interactions with other groups of people influenced Illyrian settlement patterns. Specifically, how Greek colonization followed by Roman incorporation affected Illyrian settlement patterns in Albania.
