Staff William W. Fitzhugh, Director Dr. WILLIAM W. FITZHUGH, Director of the Arctic Studies Center and Curator in the Department of Anthropology, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, is a specialist in circumpolar anthropology and archeology who has spent more than twenty-five years studying and publishing on arctic peoples and cultures in northern Canada, Alaska, Siberia, and Scandinavia. His archeological and environmental research has focussed on the prehistory and paleoecology of northeastern North America, especially on the problem of Eskimo and Indian cultural development across the forest-tundra boundary in Labrador. Broader aspects of his research feature the evolution of northern maritime adaptations, cross-cultural comparative studies, and acculturation processes in the North. He has conducted field work in all areas of the arctic, including Russia, except Greenland. Recent research efforts have been directed at archeological and historical studies of the Martin Frobisher AD 1576-78 voyages and their impact on Inuit cultures of Southeastern Baffin Island, Canada and exploration of the culture history of the Russian Arctic, especially of the lower Ob River and Yamal Peninsula region of Western Siberia where oil development and economic and culture change threatens the traditional lifeways of a remarkably well-preserved reindeer herding people, the Nenets. As curator of the National Museum of Natural History collections, Fitzhugh has produced two international exhibitions, Inua: Spirit World of the Bering Sea Eskimos and Crossroads of Continents: Native Cultures of Siberia and Alaska, and is currently preparing another major exhibition, Kamuy: Spirit of the Ainu Art and Culture of Japan's Northern Native People. His public and educational activities include the production of films, including the NOVA specials, Mysteries of the Lost Red Paint People and Norse America. He served as Chairman of the Smithsonian's Department of Anthropology from 1975-80, is a Board Member of the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States, an Advisor to the Arctic Research Commission, and holds various other administrative and advisory posts.

From Nordisk Museologi 1996/2: SUMMARY pp. 27-34 The Bergslagen ecomuseum - from idea to reality
When plans for the western part of the region, Västerbergslagen, were drawn up, the author offered several ideas akin to the Husby trail. However the project grew in size and in the end it broke both municipality and county boundaries in order to give a comprehensive picture of the, nationally important early industrial history of Bergslagen. The planning work was done in the 1980s and in 1986 the official opening took place. The characteristics of the new museum, which maintains the "umbrella" style, are that the ecomuseum does not own the objects in it, the responsibility for each site stays with a local association, that cooperation with municipal tourist organisations is important and that the museum activities are linked with the cultural affair authorities as well as with the local heritage movement and voluntary workers.

The Vikings were the master mariners and ship-builders of the middle ages: their success depended on these skills. Spectacular archaeological finds of whole or partial ships, from burial mounds or dredged from harbours, continue to give new and exciting evidence of their practical craftsmanship and urge to seek new shores. The nautical vocabulary of the Viking Age, however, has been surprisingly neglected - the last
comprehensive study was published in 1912 and was heavily dependent on post-Viking Age sources.
Far better contemporary sources from the later Viking Age are available to document the activities of men and their uses of ships from c.950-1100, and Judith Jesch undertakes in this book the first systematic and comparative study of such evidence. The core is a critical survey of the vocabulary of ships and their crews, of fleets and sailing and battles at sea, based on runic inscriptions and skaldic evidence from c.950-1100. This nautical vocabulary is studied within the larger context of 'viking' activity in this period: what that activity
was and where it took place, its social and military aspects, and its impact on developments in the nature of kingship in Scandinavia.

Aboriginal education: this University's vital role
Robert Williamson
There's a growing momentum of interest in this University in aboriginal education, slow in coming and as yet not very wide-spread, but timely, prescient, and welcome. The impetus for the present surge of interest in aboriginal education came most significantly from the University's Framework for Planning (1998), through the work of the Planning Committee. More recently, Vice-president Michael Atkinson has been soliciting campus-wide advice and there are growing indications that the University is serious. Given the demographic trends in this province and the developing needs of the total population, half of which is predicted to be of Aboriginal ancestry by 2015, it had better be serious. This is not to say that this institution has totally ignored indigenous interests. In 1961, the University established the Institute for Northern Studies (INS) which, while serving research interests, had a strong involvement in human programs. Contemporaneously, the University established working relationships with the NWT government and with the federal and provincial governments in the development of the Indian and Northern Education Program.
