The ELLA project

June 6, 2013

Finally, it’s official! Our project proposal Understanding Cultural Resilience and Climate Change on the Bering Sea through Yup’ik Ecological Knowledge, Lifeways, Learning and Archaeology (ELLA) has been successful! The AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) has offered us a grant for four years of research; excavation, post-ex, wider landscape research, and community outreach activities have been funded; and three post docs, a museum conservator and two PhD-students will join the project. The research will be undertaken in close collaboration with Qanirtuuq Inc, and in collaboration with other academic partners. Needless to say, we’re over the moon. No more archaeology on a shoestring! We can’t wait to start this exciting new part of our archaeological adventure!

    Does this mean you won’t send us to scavenge for supplies in the junkyard this year? I don’t know if I can handle that much luxury.
