The Inglefield Land Archaeology Project undertook archaeological survey of 3 areas of Foulke Fjord in 2006. Based on comparisons with surveys completed in Eastern Inglefield Land, the density of features in Foulke Fjord substantially exceeded those from other regions of Inglefield Land. The most parsimonious explanation for the higher occurrence of features in this region is the presence of little auk colonies on the scree slopes of the inner fjords. Based on excavations at Iita (Etah) and densities of features in the fjord, Foulke Fjord appears to have been continually occupied throughout the Thule-historic period (A.D. 1250-1953),and during the previous Late Dorset period (ca. A.D. 800-1250). However, features associated with the early Paleoeskimo period (2500-500 B.C.) are located only at the outer margins of the fjord
