Back in Anchorage the site directing team are celebrating a successful season with a well deserved pint
The most longed for pint (no American baby-sized beer) ever!
Well done,guys! A pint on us when you get back.
So are the goodies joining the Elgin Marbles or will they be coming back to Alaska? Patrick
Thanks for showing interest in our project. Your question raises an interesting point on previous colonial practise in archaeology – something that we are very aware of. The treatment and repository of the artefacts were planned with the village from the outset. They are all coming back to Alaska and a local museum as soon as they are properly conserved and catalogued. They are the property of Qanirtuuq inc, the native village corporation on temporary loan to Aberdeen for preservation and research purposes. The excavation was initiated by the village and is a collaborative project between Qanirtuuq inc. and University of Aberdeen since the start
