English Translation of The Earliest Stages of Settlement by People of Northeast Asia by Yu. Mochanov
The Shared Beringian Heritage Program is pleased to announce the release of the translation of The Earliest Stages of Settlement by People of Northeast Asia by Yuri A. Mochanov, a leading Russian archeologist. It was originally published in Novosibirsk, Russia in 1977.
The monograph translation provides English-speaking scholars with a wealth of information on archeological sites of the Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene periods that prior to this release was not accessible outside of Russia. The data for the book was collected from years of excavations, surveys, and research in a vast region located between the Enisey River basin, the Pacific coast, the Amur River basin, and the Arctic Ocean islands.
The publication is intended for archeologists, anthropologists, and other people interested in the study of the Paleolithic in Northeast Asia and the initial stages of settlement of North America.
This publication helps fulfill the Shared Beringian Heritage Program goal of promoting the study, interpretation, and enjoyment of the natural and cultural resources on international significance. It also assists with fostering a climate of mutual understanding and cooperation among the United States, Russia, and the indigenous people of Beringia.
Limited copies of this publication are available free of charge through the Shared Beringian Heritage Program. If you would like a copy please contact program staff. You can also download the book from our website.
