The Baikal-Hokkaido Archeology Project (BHAP) is an international and multi-disciplinary team of scholars investigating Middle Holocene hunter-gatherer culture dynamics in two regions of the world:  the Lake Baikal region of Siberia, Russia and Hokkaido, Japan.

The aim of this web site is to provide information about the activities of the Project and of the different aspects of the research we are conducting. Please look around, and feel free to contact us with questions, comments, or suggestions.

Our research is primarily supported by the Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, as well as through generous contributions from the sponsors and collaborating institutions listed below.

If you are interested in our previous research in the Baikal Region, please check our archived web site at:  http://bap.artsrn.ualberta.ca/

BHAP also has its own Twitter account and Facebook page.
