Explore the Story of Nunalleq, Alaska

Readers of The Orkney News will be aware that we have been covering The Nunalleq archaeological excavation and research in Alaska. Like so many projects it was interrupted by the Covid pandemic. But they have been very busy.

They are delighted to share that the Nunalleq Digital Museum & Catalogue is now online! www.nunalleq.org/

Using the new resource you can explore Yup’ik life in the past, told by the Quinhagak community in the present.

Cycle through the seasons to unlock unique themed pages with artwork and media content based on current interpretations from over a decade of archaeological excavations at Nunalleq.

You can also use the trowel icon to browse the catalogue of over 6000 objects from the collection.

And more is to come – This version works best for desktop – but stay tuned for a phone-friendly version coming later this summer.
