There are 3 records now from Alaska midden sites:
  
 Etnier, Michael A., Megan A. Partlow, and Nora R. Foster. 2016. Alutiiq Subsistence Economy at
Igvak, a Russian-American Artel in the Kodiak Archipelago. Arctic Anthropology 53(2):52-
68.
  
 Etnier, Michael A. 2011. The faunal assemblage from Awa'uq (Refuge Rock): a unique record from
the Kodiak Archipelago, Kodiak, Alaska. Alaska Journal of Anthropology 9:55-64.
  
 and an unpublished (at least I think it's not published yet) record from Adak Island identified by Diane Hanson
  
  
 but never more than a couple of fragments of beaks.  Offhand, I'd say if there is preserved periostracum from bivalves, you *might* have a chance of finding octopus beaks as well.

> Hey Zooarchs,

> Has anyone ever found any octopus beaks on a dig? We have a project in Southwest Madagascar where modern fishing communities focus largely on octopus, but we've so far found none in the archaeological record despite extensive fishing related finds. Does anyone have any ideas?
