The Baikal Archaeology Project (BAP) is an international and multi-disciplinary team of scholars investigating Middle Holocene hunter-gatherer culture dynamics in two Russian regions: Baikal in Siberia (8,300–3,500 years ago) and Karelia in European Russia (8,700–8,000 years ago).

Project headquarters are based in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alberta.

Our research is primarily supported by the Partnership Grants program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, as well as through generous contributions from the sponsors and collaborating institutions listed below.
