mammoths

Evidence of the first people in the Arctic were discovered during the excavation of a mammoth Jenny.

Archeological evidence of the spread of humans into Northern Eurasia to 40 thousand years ago are extremely rare in Western Siberia similar findings are North of 57 degrees North latitude. In other regions of the first people in the Arctic did not appear earlier 35-30 thousand years ago. A group of Russian researchers conducted an excavation of mammoth remains Dating back to 45 thousand years before present. time, research which expands the boundaries of the proposed area of distribution of primitive people to 72 degrees North latitude.

Evidence of human settlements in the Arctic before the Last glacial maximum (the last ice age – about 26 thousand years ago) are extremely rare. Before the opening of the human sites in the Mammoth courier (Dating back to around 37 thousand years ago) and on the river Yana, the researchers were of the view that the territory of the Arctic region remained unsettled up to the border of the Pleistocene and the Holocene (about 11 to 12 thousand years ago). Discoveries in the last 20 years have confirmed the presence of humans in the Arctic at least since the late marine isotope stage 3 (MIS 3 to about 30 thousand years ago).

Known archeological evidence for human occupation of Northern Eurasia during the first 3 polovinkami. In Siberia this evidence is concentrated far South of the Arctic circle. Only on the territory of Northern Eurasia, there are about 15 to 20 archaeological sites from the Northern limit of 55 degrees North latitude and the fossil age of about 35-30 thousand years up to the present. time.
