Nunalleq 2015

Nunalleq is the name of an archaeological site in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region of Southwestern Alaska, near the village of Quinhagak.

The University of Aberdeen Department of Archaeology, in partnership with the village corporation Qanirtuuq, Inc. and the Yup’ik Eskimo village of Quinhagak, Alaska, is working to record archaeological sites threatened by rising sea levels along the Bering Sea.

Nunalleq means ‘the Old Village’ in Yup’ik. It is a multi-period prehistoric (or precontact) Yup’ik winter village site.
