Description

Through innovative analysis of animal bones recovered from archaeological sites, this comprehensive study documents the intricate relationships between the Siglit or Mackenzie Inuit and their food animals, from their earliest occupations 800 years ago to the arrival of Europeans in the 19th century. This volume chronicles the connections between developing Siglit economies and shifts in technology, settlement, demography, and climate, exposing in the process the primary link between Siglit subsistence and culture.
