On the Track of the Thule Culture from Bering Strait to East Greenland: Proceedings of the Sila Conference the Thule Culture - New Perspectives in Inu (Hardcover)
The Thule Culture - the ancestors of the present day Inuit - never cease to fascinate and spur archaeological and ethno-historical research. As a tribute to the most distinguished specialist in the Thule culture of the Eastern Arctic, research professor Hans Christian Gullov at SILA - The Greenland Research Centre at the National Museum of Denmark, a number of experts on arctic archaeology and ethno-history have contributed with peer-reviewed papers to these proceedings. Two guest papers by emeritus professor Lewis R. Binford are included. The papers address: origins and spread of the Thule culture from Alaska across Canada to Greenland; prehistoric and historic resource utilization and hunting methods; landscapes, dwellings and hunting territories of the Thule culture; cultural meetings and transitions from prehistory to history; the Thule Culture in its global context.
