    © 2018 Elsevier Ltd Gelatin extracted from archaeological fish bones typically exhibits relatively high C/N ratios, presumed to be caused by contamination with lipids or humic substances. The effects of lipid extraction and different collagen extraction methods applied has been studied on modern fish bones but has never been studied systematically on archaeological specimens because of taphonomic and experimental reasons. In this study, the effects of lipid extraction and order of NaOH treatment in collagen extraction method on carbon and nitrogen stable isotope analysis of archaeological fish bone (n = 30) excavated from the Hamanaka 2 site, Hokkaido, Japan (approximately 8th BC–10th AD) is investigated. Gelatin extracted from the same fish bone subsamples with or without lipid extraction procedure indicates neither significant nor systematic differences in carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios, elemental concentrations, C/N ratios, and yield. However, reproducibility of stable isotope ratios and elemental concentrations decrease in gelatin extracted from poorly-preserved cod bones (<3.5% yield). Gelatin extracted from archaeological fish bones may contain humic contaminants, and its effect becomes greater in gelatin with lower extraction yield. Although there is no significant change in the stable isotope and C/N ratios, change in atomic concentration of carbon and nitrogen suggests that the purity of extracted gelatin increases when NaOH treatment is applied after decalcification. Because this is only a study from one archaeological site, further case studies that evaluate lipids and diagenesis in fish bones are required.

    Hokkaido obsidian sources have been widely exploited by hunter-gatherer groups in Northeast Asia since the Upper Paleolithic (~30,000 cal. BP). Rebun Island is located 50 km from the northwest tip of Hokkaido in the Sea of Japan. Given that obsidian does not occur naturally on Rebun Island, all obsidian materials found there are the result prehistoric transportation of these resources. Examination of 133 obsidian artifacts collected from excavations on Rebun Island employing portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) provides data for assessment of obsidian resource use during the Middle Jomon, Epi-Jomon, and Okhotsk periods on Rebun Island. Previously published data are also consulted for the Late and Final Jomon, and Epi-Jomon period on Rebun Island. The findings of this study suggest that the most prevalent changes in obsidian resource use on Rebun Island occur between the Middle and Late Jomon periods, and the Late Jomon and Okhotsk periods. These results demonstrate that variation in obsidian resource use during these periods is closely associated with patterns of culture change, in Hokkaido, and on Rebun Island.

    The Neolithic in north-east Asia is defined by the presence of ceramic containers, rather than agriculture, among hunter-gatherer communities. The role of pottery in such groups has, however, hitherto been unclear. This article presents the results of organic residue analysis of Neolithic pottery from Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East. Results indicate that early pottery on Sakhalin was used for the processing of aquatic species, and that its adoption formed part of a wider Neolithic transition involving the reorientation of local lifeways towards the exploitation of marine resources.

    This paper discusses archaeobotanical remains of naked barley recovered from the Okhotsk cultural layers of the Hamanaka 2 archaeological site on Rebun Island, northern Japan. Calibrated ages (68% confidence interval) of the directly dated barley remains suggest that the crop was used at the site ca. 440-890 cal yr AD. Together with the finds from the Oumu site (north-eastern Hokkaido Island), the recovered seed assemblage marks the oldest well -documented evidence for the use of barley in the Hokkaido Region. The archaeobotanical data together with the results of a detailed pollen analysis of contemporaneous sediment layers from the bottom of nearby Lake Kushu point to low-level food production, including cultivation of barley and possible management of wild plants that complemented a wide range of foods derived from hunting, fishing, and gathering. This qualifies the people of the Okhotsk culture as one element of the long-term and spatially broader Holocene hunter gatherer cultural complex (including also Jomon, Epi-Jomon, Satsumon, and Ainu cultures) of the Japanese archipelago, which may be placed somewhere between the traditionally accepted boundaries between foraging and agriculture. To our knowledge, the archaeobotanical assemblages from the Hokkaido Okhotsk culture sites highlight the north-eastern limit of prehistoric barley dispersal. Seed morphological characteristics identify two different barley phenotypes in the Hokkaido Region. One compact type (naked barley) associated with the Okhotsk culture and a less compact type (hulled barley) associated with Early Middle Satsumon culture sites. This supports earlier suggestions that the "Satsumon type" barley was likely propagated by the expansion of the Yayoi culture via south-western Japan, while the "Okhotsk type" spread from the continental Russian Far East region, across the Sea of Japan. After the two phenotypes were independently introduced to Hokkaido, the boundary between both barley domains possibly existed ca. 600-1000 cal yr AD across the island region. Despite a large body of studies and numerous theoretical and conceptual debates, the question of how to differentiate between hunter gatherer and farming economies persists reflecting the wide range of dynamic subsistence strategies used by humans through the Holocene. Our current study contributes to the ongoing discussion of this important issue.

    Integrated studies of the geological context and fauna of Palaeolithic sites made it possible to reconstruct climate and environments of Baikal Siberia during MIS 3 - MIS 2. The main constituents of the faunal assemblages are small mammals which are a reliable bioindicator of landscapes and climates of the past. In the Fore-Baikal area, fauna recovered from archaeological sites presents a mixture of ecological indicators, its components presently inhabiting different natural zones. The sediments studied at the Bol'shoi Naryn and Gerasimov's sites and dated to MIS 3 yielded fauna with a large proportion of tundra species; its composition suggests mosaic landscapes of tundra-forest-meadow-steppes and a cold humid climate at the time of human habitation. Fauna from the Malta site (MIS 2) is indicative of tundra-steppe and harsh climate at the beginning of the Sartan glaciation. Evidence from the end of the Pleistocene and postglacial, indicates the climate becoming warmer and wetter. Tundra animals are absent from MIS 3 sites of Transbaikalia. According to faunal evidence, dry steppe and arid climates existed at the early Sartan (MIS 2), and taiga animal species appeared and increased in importance towards the end of Pleistocene, when the forests had wide distribution. Fauna from MIS 3 sites in the southwestern Baikal area (Near-Baikal area) is similar to Transbaikalia, lacking tundra species and dominated by indicators of dry steppe and arid climates. The southwestern Baikal is more similar to Fore-Baikal area, both having a higher proportion of forest species than in Transbaikalian assemblages. The fauna distribution displays features of mosaic landscapes with distinctly identified zones: forest-and meadow-steppe along rivers, and dry steppe and semi-desert on south-facing slopes of mountains. The climate was milder than in the Transbaikal and warmer than in the Fore-Baikal area. Unfortunately, we have little data on the fauna of MIS 2. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd and INQUA. All rights reserved.

    Rebun Island with Hamanaka and Funadomari among the 43 documented archaeological sites and the environmental archive stored in the Lake Kushu sediment proves to be one of the key areas to study the interplay between ecology, climate and human activities. This paper focuses on the potential of palaeobotanical records from Rebun Island for improving the chronological control and understanding of late Quaternary climate changes and habitation environments of northern hunter-gatherers in the Hokkaido Region of Japan. A set of 57 radiocarbon dates of the RK12 core (Lake Kushu) demonstrates that it represents a continuous environmental archive covering the last c. 17,000years. The RK12 pollen record reflects distinct vegetation changes associated with the onset of the lateglacial warming about 15,000 cal. yr BP and the cold climate reversal after c. 13,000 cal. yr BP. The onset of the current Holocene interglacial after c. 11,700 cal. yr BP is marked by a major spread of trees. The middle Holocene (c. 8000-4000 cal. yr BP) is characterized by a major spread of deciduous oak in the vegetation cover reflecting a temperature increase. A decline of oak and spread of fir and pine is recorded at c. 2000 cal. yr BP. After c. 1100 cal. yr BP, arboreal pollen percentages decrease, possibly linked to intensified usage of wood during the Okhotsk and Ainu culture periods. The results of diatom analysis suggest marshy or deltaic environments at the RK12 coring site prior to c. 10,500 cal. yr BP and a brackish lagoon between c. 10,500 and 7000 cal. yr BP. A freshwater lake developed after 6500 cal. yr BP, likely reflecting sea level stabilization and formation of the sand bar separating the Kushu depression from the sea. Plant macrofossil analysis shows use of various wild plants and also domesticated barley during the Okhotsk and Ainu periods.

    We present the oldest human skeletal case yet identified with possible SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis), a chronic disease involving the skin, bone, and joints. A human skeleton with a severe pathological condition was recovered from a shell mound of the prehistoric Okhotsk culture at the Hamanaka 2 site, Rebun Island, Hokkaido, Japan in 2013. Morphological and Amelogenin gene analyses determined the sex as female, and the age at time of death was estimated to be in the forties using analysis of the auricular surface of the ilium. The stable isotope ratios of this individual (NAT002) and other Hamanaka 2 samples indicated a heavy dependence on marine mammals and fish for dietary protein intake. Radiocarbon age on collagen from the bone of NAT002 was 1689 20 BP, or 1060-1155 (68.2%) calAD. Macroscopic and computed tomography (CT) findings indicated diffuse hyperostosis in the axial and appendicular skeleton, including the mandible, vertebrae, clavicles, sternum, scapulae, humeri, radii, ulnae, and ilium, caused by osteitis and synovitis. The bilateral clavicles were most affected, in which CT imaging revealed irregular cortical thickening, termed 'grotesque periostitis.' The case was diagnosed as most likely having SAPHO syndrome, although dermatological findings could not be detected. Although SAPHO syndrome is a fairly new concept in autoimmune diseases, this case suggests the syndrome originated much earlier in human history.

    As a result of integrated researches on two Paleolithic sites of the Fore-Baikal region - Bol'shoj Naryn and Gerasimov's, the first representative mammal fauna of the Karginian interstadial been dated and characterized. That provided the basis for reconstructing the paleoenvironments in the Fore-Baikal region during MIS 3. The species composition of the faunal remains recovered from the Bol'shoj Naryn site in the course of five-year excavations since 2003 was examined in details. Since 2010, the cultural layer was studied layer-by-layer (at 5 cm intervals), all the artifacts and faunal remains (of mollusks, birds, and mammals) being described. In addition, the lower, middle and upper parts of cultural layer were sampled for palynological analysis. The geological and paleontological data thus obtained suggest a moderately cold and humid climate in the Fore-Baikal region during MIS 3, with predominant open landscapes of steppes and relatively limited areas under taiga forest, tundra, and wetlands. There are abundant data on significant environmental changes in the Fore-Baikal region during MIS 3 previously obtained by investigators, such as pollen spectra recovered from the Lake Kotokel bottom sediments or faunal remains (including small mammals) excavated from the Bol'shoj Naryn site. The present study, however, differs from the earlier ones in that it included multidisciplinary analysis of a large number of faunal and floral remains recovered from the same section and characterizing the same region. The data thus obtained from the Bol'shoj Naryn site are extremely important for better understanding of the Late Pleistocene environments of the Fore-Baikal region. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd and INQUA.

    While substantial progress has been achieved in hunter-gatherer research over the last century, it is still the case that the understanding of the cultural dynamism, variability, and resilience of Holocene hunter-gatherers remains rather impoverished. Emerging archaeological insights suggest that the prehistory of many forager societies included periods of sudden cultural transformation, marked by major shifts in subsistence strategies, settlement patterns and associated social life. Recent theoretical and methodological advances are enabling archaeologists to reconstruct the cultural dynamics of Holocene hunter-gatherers in an unprecedented degree of detail. This is especially true in regions that contain large prehistoric cemeteries, which can provide the base data for bioarchaeological reconstruction of individual life histories, shedding light on forager life-ways, their subsistence strategies and mobility patterns. Renewed attention is also being directed at the role of unstable environments and climate, which would have formed important contextual factors influencing how local cultural dynamics were played out. However, identifying explicit causal links between environmental instability and culture change remains empirically challenging. This paper investigates the major sequences of Holocene hunter-gatherer culture change in two regions of Northeast Asia and details how the new Baikal-Hokkaido Archaeology Project will be researching the causal factors driving these cultural processes, including the possible role of climate and environment. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd and INQUA.

    A representative mammal fauna attributable to the Karginian Interstadial (MIS 3, 36 000-23 000 BP) has been found for the first time in the Fore-Baikalian region. The faunal remains were recovered from Gerasimov's and Bol'shoi Naryn Paleolithic sites in 2003-2008. Zooarchaeological investigations revealed 51 mammal species in the region, dominated by horse Equus sp., steppe lemming Lagurus lagurus, narrow-sculled vole Microtus gregalis and North-Siberian vole M. cf. hyperboreus. The early humans appear to have inhabited a forest-steppe, with local patches of tundra-like landscapes. The Karginian climate was warmer and more humid than during the subsequent Sartan glacial epoch (MIS 2). (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd and INQUA. All rights reserved.

    Located at approximately 53 degrees N, 103 degrees E, the Bol'shoj Naryn site lies on the hills facing Osa Bay, in the Bratsk Reservoir. The authors started excavating this site in 2003. By 2005, we had found 337 stone tools and flakes, and more than 600 animal fossils, from the paleosol layers (C-14 dating: from 25,000 to 32,000 yr BP) deposited in the second half of the Karginian Interstadial. Large specimens of the fossils collected by visual observation were mostly the bones and teeth of Equus sp. and Bovinae, and small specimens obtained through wet sieving included many fossils of Lagurus lagurus, Microtus sp., and Spermophilus undulatus. This suggests that the steppe had spread around this site by the last half of the Karginian Interstadial. However, some of the animal fossils collected from the Bol'shoj Naryn site were characteristic of tundra or forest, as well as steppe. To understand why, remains characteristic of three different habitats were excavated from the same paleosol of the Karginian Interstadial, detailed discussions centered on the radiocarbon age of each material are needed. As part of our investigation of the fossils of large vertebrates, we measured various parts of the fossils of Eanus sp. in excavated specimens and in specimens collected from the reservoir's shore, in accordance with the procedure described by von den Driesch [1976. A Guide to the Measurement of Animal Bones from Archaeological Sites. Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology Bulletin 1, Peabody Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA]. We inserted the measured values into the formula of Nishinakagawa et al. [1991. A study on the time and the route of the introduction of cattle and horses into Japan, as examined from skeletal remains of archaeological sites. Report of the Grant-in-Aid from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Scientific Research (B) 1990 (Japanese, English abstract)] and found that the collected fossils were mostly of individuals with withers heights between 125 and 135 cm. To clarify the time transition, a future project will use measurements to examine the trait characteristics of the fossils of other large mammals. In future, we intend to clarify the histories of nature and humankind in the Pleistocene in the Fore-Baikal region and to add animal fossils excavated from other sites to the scope of our research.
