Search Visit Alaska

Castle Hill was once the colonial capitol of Russian-America. The Castle Hill Archaeological Project discovered buried ruins of four Russian-American Company buildings, along with over 4,000 pounds of artifacts. An adjacent midden deposit indicates that Sitka Tlingit Indians were living at Castle Hill around 1,000 years ago.

Following analysis, the artifacts will be stored at the University Of Alaska Fairbanks museum.
