|Feature Name:||Anangula Site|
|Category:||Alaska physical, cultural and historic features|
|Description:||National Historic Landmark|
|History:||This island site was of paramount importance in the peopling of North America and represents the earliest known occupation in the Aleutians. Archeologists have found evidence of ancient stone core and blade tools which were buried deep beneath many layers of volcanic ash. Radiocarbon tests in 1975 dated human occupation as having occurred here about 8,400 years earlier. Anangula Site is the remains of a village occupied by Eskimo-Aleuts who migrated along the Alaska Peninsula land bridge that connected the Asian and North American continents. Their racial resemblance to people of Eastern Siberia and their maritime cultural orientation plainly set them apart from the other aboriginal inhabitants of North America.|
