Title: Seals and hunters on Lake Baikal in Siberia
Sealing on Siberia's Lake Baikal was carried out by several hunter-gatherer and pastoralist groups throughout the Holocene, and small-scale hunting of these animals is still conducted here by indigenous populations. Bones of Baikal seals are commonly found during excavations of the region's habitation sites but also are seen in ‘ritual' stone features, caves, human burials, and in rock art, suggesting an important role of these animals in local diets, subsistence practices, and worldviews. Dr. Nomokonova's talk is based on her recent ethnoarchaeological and zooarchaeological studies in the Lake Baikal region. These studies have utilized seal bones to reconstruct age and sex of taken animals, seasonality of hunting, and processing and consumption patterns. Further, Dr. Nomokonova integrate these data with the knowledge and experience of modern seal hunters to produce a more complete and nuanced understanding of seal-hunter interactions through time in this unique Siberian landscape.

Date: Thursday, January 26, 2012
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Venue: ANSO 134
