A DAY AT AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG - A crew from the University of Alaska Museum of the North returned to the Noatak National Preserve in Northern Alaska this summer to continue research into several sites where rock art has been found at stone-ringed communal houses.

Archaeologists working in the 1960s and 70s found boulders at three different lakefront sites.

The rock art remained on location, undisturbed for almost 40 years, until a team from the UA Museum of the North and the National Park Service assembled to create a permanent record.
