Kenneth M. Ames, Anthropology emeritus faculty, has been awarded a three-year, National Science Foundation grant for a project titled "Settlement Pattern Dynamics and the Evolution of Social Complexity on the Northern Northwest Coast," which looks at shifting land use patterns and the development of very dense sedentary populations and permanent inequality among dense populations in Prince Rupert Harbor, British Columbia. The project also tests archaeological data and Coast Tsimshian oral traditions against each other. The project is co-funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and involves collaborators at the University of British Columbia, University of Alberta, University College London and University of Glasgow.
