Cover of Prehistoric Hunter-Gatherers of the Baikal Region, Siberia

Prehistoric Hunter-Gatherers of the Baikal Region, Siberia: Bioarchaeological Studies of Past Life Ways
Edited by Andrzej Weber, M. Anne Katzenberg, and Theodore G. Schurr

A volume in the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology series

Siberia's Lake Baikal region is an archaeologically unique and emerging area of hunter-gatherer research, offering insights into the complexity, variability, and dynamics of long-term culture change. The exceptional quality of archaeological materials recovered there facilitates interdisciplinary studies whose relevance extends far beyond the region. The Baikal Archaeology Project - one of the most comprehensive studies ever conducted in the history of subarctic archaeology - is conducted by an international multidisciplinary team studying Middle Holocene (about 9,000 to 3,000 years B.P.) hunter-gatherers of the region. Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the project includes scholars in archaeology, physical anthropology, ethnography, molecular biology, geophysics, geochemistry, and paleoenvironmental studies.

This book presents the current team's research findings on questions about long-term patterns of hunter-gatherer adaptive strategies. Grounded in inter-disciplinary approaches to primary research questions of cultural change and continuity over 6,000 years, the project utilizes advanced research methods and integrates diverse lines of evidence in making fundamental and lasting contributions to hunter-gatherer archaeology.

Northern Hunter-Gatherers
Research Series

With pleasure we present to the academic community the Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series, established specifically to deal with hunting and gathering peoples from arctic, boreal and sub-boreal regions. Published by the Canadian Circumpolar Institute Press in collaboration with the Baikal Archaeology Project the scope of Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series is interdisciplinary, providing a forum to connect scholars from a wide variety of research areas including archaeology, anthropology, biological and earth sciences, ecology, history, sociology and other social sciences.

The editors are committed to maintaining an international breadth and will translate to English both classic and significant contemporary foreign language studies. Publications will include site reports, monographs, ethnographies, conferences and workshops proceedings, and methodological studies.

The origin of the new series resides with the Baikal Archaeology Project and the support received through the Major Collaborative Research Initiative research grant program from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada as well as the matching funds provided by the University of Alberta including the Canadian Circumpolar Institute. While the scholarly scope of the Baikal Archaeology Project clearly identified the need for a broad interdisciplinary forum for dissemination and stimulation of research on the north, the financial support received from the aforementioned institutions made this initiative possible.

Future volumes in progress include two site monographs describing the Cis-Baikal cemeteries of Khuzhir-Nuge XIV and Lokomotiv, as well as translations of two important Russian language ethnographic studies: The Ethnography of the Katanga Evenkis by Anna A. Sirina, and Evenkian Economy in the Taiga Area of Middle Siberia at the end of the 19th Century, Beginning of the 20th Century by Mikhail G. Turov. The editors of Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series also look forward to receiving future submissions by researchers with similar interests so that this series can live up to its mandate to promote innovative research and to discuss the challenges faced by peoples living in the north, both in the past and the present.

Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series Volume 6
Archaeology in China and East Asia Volume 3

With pleasure we present to the academic community the sixth volume published as part of the Baikal Archaeology Project's Northern Hunter- Gatherers Series. The volume is third site monograph published in the series and presents both archaeological and human osteological data from fieldwork conducted by the project at the mortuary site Kurma XI, in the extensively researched Little Sea area of Lake Baikal, Siberia.

Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) as a Major Collaborative Research Initiative, and supported by a partnership with Irkutsk State University, the Baikal Project has focused on identifying and understanding the processes associated with culture change and continuity among prehistoric boreal forest hunter-gatherers in Siberia's Cis-Baikal region. Mortuary sites have provided the primary data that inform several analytical modules designed by the project.

The Kurma XI cemetery comprises 26 graves, excavated jointly by Russian and Canadian teams in 1994, 2002, and 2003. Many of the grave inclusions found in these graves were of a very rare category, with a bronze medallion and a silver ring being unique finds in the entire Cis-Baikal region.

Evenki Economy in the Central Siberian Taiga at the Turn of the 20th Century: Principles of Land Use
by Mikhail G. Turov
Authorized English translation of the second Russian edition (1990) prepared by Andrzej W. Weber and Ksenia Maryniak

Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series No. 5 (2010)
CCI Press and the Baikal Archaeology Project

Cover of Evenki Economy in the Central Siberian Taiga at the turn of the 20th Century

Mikhail G. Turov's monograph is essentially the first ethnography produced by a Russian scholar that focuses on the culture-economic adaptations of Evenkis in the taiga zone of Central Siberia. This work is based on the author's extensive field research, as well as on a broad examination of literary and archival sources. It differs substantially from the mainstream Russian ethnographic research of the time in its focus, which shifts away from the traditional interests in ethnic history and origins, and from static descriptions of the material culture, social and political organization, rituals, and religious life.

This work will be of considerable interest to western readers because of its approach, which is as close to culture-ecology as it gets in Russian ethnographic scholarship. While in the West the culture- ecological school was a major breakthrough in hunter-gatherer studies, it never, despite the huge potential, took hold in Soviet ethnography because of their political and intellectual isolation. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, preceded by a rather lengthy economic crisis, the natives of Siberia were faced with a number of new challenges, and this immediately became the focus of contemporary ethnographic work. Thus, Turov‚s monograph retains its status of a very rare ethnography employing an approach akin to the culture-ecological school. For the same reason it should be of great interest to ethnographers and archaeologists working with northern hunter-gatherers past and present.

It received excellent reviews, as well, and has been submitted to SSHRC's Aid to Scholarly Publications Programme for a publishing subvention. For ordering information, please contact linda.cameron@ualberta.ca at University of Alberta Press.

CCI Press and the Baikal Archaeology Project

Cover of Khuzhir-Nuge XIV, A Middle Holocene Hunter-Gatherer Cemetery on Lake Baikal, Siberia: Osteological Materials

With pleasure we present to the academic community the third volume in the Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series. This volume presents comprehensive human osteological data from fieldwork conducted by the Baikal project (BAP) at the mortuary site Khuzhir-Nuge XIV on Lake Baikal in Siberia. The goal of the BAP has been to identify and understand the processes associated with culture change and continuity among prehistoric boreal forest hunter-gatherers in the Cis-Baikal region of Siberia. Mortuary sites have provided the primary data that inform the several modules designed by the BAP, and of the gravesites dating to the Neolithic and Bronze Age located and excavated in this area, Khuzhir-Nuge XIV is by far the largest. Six seasons of excavation at KN XIV produced a wealth of material on 79 graves, including the remains of 89 individuals. The present monograph (to be complemented by a subsequent volume of Archaeological Materials) is dedicated to a descriptive account of the human osteological collection acquired from the KN XIV graves, and includes the entire KN XIV human taphonomy dataset and extensive photographic documentation on an accompanying CD-ROM.

Katanga Evenkis in the 20th Century and the Ordering of their Life-world
by Anna A. Sirina

An authorized translation from the second Russian edition (2002)
Translated by A. Chaptykova; Edited by David G. Anderson

Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series No. 2 (2006)
CCI Press and the Baikal Archaeology Project

Cover of Katanga Evenkis in the 20th century and the ordering of their life-world

With pleasure we present to the academic community the second volume in the Northern Hunter-Gatherers Research Series. Extensively illustrated with contemporary and archival photographs, detailed diagrams, and original artistic renderings, this work documents the history and present lives of a group of Evenki hunters and reindeer herders living at the headwaters of the Lower Tunguska River in Eastern Siberia. According to Sirina, Katanga Evenkis are best described by the flexible and creative way they use the land around them. They have exercised a strong presence in their environment despite severe pressure by Soviet-era ethnic and industrial development policies, and by recent economic privatization. The author further argues that today Katanga Evenkis continue to ‘make a home for themselves in the taiga' using a variety of adaptive strategies and intuitions in a way that reflects what she calls the ‘outlook of a mobile people.' Based on Sirina's extensive fieldwork, this book includes numerous first-person accounts as well as a multi-season hunter's diary, and is also supported by an excellent command of the published and archival material on the region.
