      Ancient bronze artifact from East Asia unearthed at Alaska archaeology site

      University of Colorado researchers have found the first pre-historic bronze artifact ever found in Alaska. It is probably from East Asia. It was found at the site of a 1000 year old house at the Bering Land Bridge National Park. Some leather on the object was dated to 600 CE. The object may be older than the leather. It appears to be a buckle or part of a harness. The object had to have been obtained by long distance trade to Korea, China, Manchuria or southern Siberia. The researchers are studying climate change in the area from 800-1400 CE.
