8000 BP.’ They believe there were staging posts on the exchange route and note that ‘obsidian artefacts have been found in the Malyy Anyuy River basin (in western Chukotka) and in the lower course of the Kolyma River’.They suggest that ‘it is possible that raw obsidian was transported to the Malyy Anyuy River basin in the Middle–Late Holocene (Neolithic and Bronze Age) as unmodified nodules…Es asombroso que hayan encontrado esa obsidiana en ese lugar tan vasto. Raúl Your ancestors were quite the travelers and also very innovative.

The presence of other Mesolithic sites on the north-eastern Siberian Arctic mainland testify — indirectly — to the active contact between human groups across this region.' The international team of researchers comprised Vladimir Pitulko (St Petersburg), Yaroslav Kuzmin (Novosibirsk), Michael D.

Glascock (USA), Elena Pavlova (St Petersburg) and Andrei Grebennikov (Vladivostok).

‘Sledge transport formed an important part of the subsistence technology of the Zhokhov site’s inhabitants.

It also should be stressed that these people were skilled travellers, who regularly visited today’s New Siberia, Faddeyevskiy and Kotel’nyy Islands to the south and west of the site—as indicated by the presence of raw materials procured from these locations.' They believe that ‘dog-sled technology, the environment and phenology have remained largely the same in the East Siberian Arctic regions for millennia, regardless of developments such as the introduction of metals, pottery or other innovations.

‘The distance between the Lake Krasnoe source and utilisation sites is around 450–500km in a direct line.

Fewer obsidian artefacts are found in and around the Kolyma River mouth, which is approximately 850km from the source.’ Kuzmin said: 'It is unlikely that the ancient people made trips to such long distances; most likely there has been an exchange or a primitive trade of obsidian.

They conclude: 'Early Holocene super-long-distance obsidian exchange in the High Arctic is now scientifically demonstrated.

Such an exchange system is a remarkable example of a subsistence strategy in use in northern Siberia at that time, if not earlier.

Winter temperatures in the area of interest, were probably like the southern United States today, so we can rule out dog-sledding.

Sea level was more than 100 metres below present making that location accessible.

More likely was an ancient exchange, or trading, system.
