In recent decades, an idea of human sustainable development in the Arctic became one of the objectives of the Arctic human research. The key component of this idea is the existence of traditional culture in historical perspective and possibilities of its development potential in the future. The history of the traditional culture of the Arctic and Sub-Arctic areas of the world can be reconstructed based on the archeological finds – the more ancient the studied period, the more important they become. Despite the logistics difficulties and the high costs of the works, archeological researches in the Arctic became more intensive lately. The significant principle of such researches is their interdisciplinarity.
