In many parts of Northwest North America glaciers and ice patches are melting at unprecedented rates. In some cases, these are revealing extraordinary archaeological remains, as I have noted before for Alaska. There’s recently been some short news reports about new finds in the Northwest Territories, to add to the substantial work already done there. Most of these reports rehash the same news release from the Arctic Institute of the Americas, which sponsored the research through International Polar Year funding (now ended). Only a few sites have photos, though.
