The aim of the project is to investigate long term hunter-gatherer social change in Northeast Asia. The project is part funded by the Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project (BHAP) and will take advantage of the extensive data created through their work in the Baikal region, Siberia and the island of Hokkaido in northern Japan. The project will focus more specifically on social complexity, cultural diversity and modes of exchange in these unique settings.
