They are here! After a long and perilous journey, artefacts arrived in Quinhagak yesterday! How exciting!

Nine years after the first excavation trench was opened artefacts are back in Quinhagak – 80 crates in total and over 60 000 pieces, the largest Yup’ik pre-contact collection in the world – will now be stored in the new Nunalleq Archaeology and Culture Centre. The homecoming of the artefacts will be celebrated on the Grand Opening of the Culture Centre on August 11th!

    So moving. I am blown away by the beauty and the meaning of these beautiful finds, and feel so much respect and admiration for the people who made them and the people who rescued them. Heartfelt thanks for this wonderful blog.
