CRC has worked in every region of the state. We have completed projects on federally-owned, state-owned, and private lands, including Native corporation lands. Below are a few of the notable projects we have completed.
Salvage Recovery at the Amaknak Bridge Site (UNL-050), Dutch Harbor, Alaska
This project was a blend of mitigation through site excavation and monitoring of an Unangan village prior to the construction of Henry Swanson Drive in Unalaska by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF). The project required a non-traditional excavation and extensive consultation between DOT&PF, Ounalashka Corporation, and Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska. The work required two field seasons and excavated 2,160 cubic meters of cultural material. Over 4,000 artifacts and samples were collected and eighty-eight features were identified.
Archaeological Investigations in the Surf Bay Archaeological District, Akun, Alaska
CRC’s work within the Surf Bay Archaeological District on Akun Island in the eastern Aleutian Islands was focused on survey, assessment, and mitigation. CRC conducted survey and testing of the Surf Bay Archaeological District on Akun Island in 2008. They returned in 2010 for data recovery excavations in the Surf Bay Landing site (UNI-104), a pre-contact period Unagan village site that was to be adversely affected by the construction of a hovercraft landing pad associated with the Akutan Airport.
