Anangula Archeological District

The Anangula Site or Anangula Archeological District is an archaeological site in Alaska. Located on a 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long island in the Aleutian Islands off the western coast of Umnak Island, it lies 3.1 miles (5.0 km) north-northwest of Nikolski Bay.

The island where this site is located has yielded evidence of the oldest occupations in the Aleutians, as many as 8,400 years ago. The Anangula Site is what is left of a settlement of people thought to have migrated here across the land bridge from Asia.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1978.
