Next Program: Life and Death at “Swift Water Place”

by Dr. Bruce Lutz, Archaeological Anthropologist

Located north of the Arctic Circle, Igliqtiqsiugvigruaq (“Swift Water Place”) is a protohistoric village site occupied in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries on the Kobuk River, Alaska. The site is well known to the Inupiat of the region, partly because the river erodes it, thus exposing artifacts and living surfaces.(more)
