ABOUT OUR PROJECT CONTACT

The Baikal-Hokkaido Archeology Project (BHAP), formerly known as simply the Baikal Archaeology Project (BAP) consists of an international and multi-disciplinary team of scholars with expertise in archaeology, physical anthropology, ethnography, molecular biology, geophysics, geochemistry and environmental reconstructions.

Together, we are exploring prehistoric hunter-gatherer lifeways in Northeast Asia using an approach that we have come to define as the bioarchaeology of individual life histories approach - a suite of methods (laboratory and macroscopic) that can generate long strings of information pertaining to the age, sex, diet, mobility, habitual activities, health and genetic traits of particular persons through examination of their skeletal remains in conjunction with their archaeological and environmental context.  See here for more information on the goals of the project.

We have a strong committment to training a new generation of scholars by supporting graduate student projects, as well as providing graduate and undertraduate students the chance to participate in summer field schools, workshops in human osteology and zooarchaeology, and other volunteer opportunties. Many of the project's current co-investigators started in the project as field school students.  If you are interested, please look at our student opportunies page or contact us.  We would be happy to hear from you.
