Julie A. Esdale and Jeffrey T. Rasic The papers in this volume were first presented in 2007 at the 34th Annual Meeting of the Alaska Anthropological Association in a session entitled "Current Perspectives on the Northern Archaic," organized by the editors. The objective of the symposium was to discuss recent research and current interpretations of the middle Holocene archaeological record of interior Alaska and adjacent parts of northwest Canada that are typically conceived of as an expression of a Northern Archaic cultural tradition. Interest in this topic was spurred by the editors' own research in interior Alaska, particularly in the northern portion of the state. That work raised questions of a very basic but intractable sort, such as how can a Northern Archaic assemblage be reliably detected, and whether this label, "Northern Archaic" is a useful construct for describing a portion of the northern archaeological record. How is the considerable variability seen among Northern Archaic assemblages best explained and what human behaviors and adaptations account for this record? These are not new questions. Forty years ago, in 1968, the nature of notched projectile point discoveries in the north was discussed in a forum at the American Anthropology Association
