    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Migration; ancient DNA; stable isotopes; δ13C; δ15N; δ34S; mtDNA; lactose tolerance; Neolithic; Pitted Ware culture; Funnel Beaker culture; Vikings; Öland; Rössberga; Birka; Björned; Archaeology; Arkeologi; Archaeological Science; laborativ arkeologi;

    Abstract : The main aim of this thesis is to show how scientific methods may be used to look at migration in prehistory on the basis of archaeological material. The individuals examined represent the period 4 000 BC to 1 000 AD and have their geographical origins in various parts of Sweden.Ancient DNA analysis is employed in three cases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tools and technology : Lithic technological analysis of Neolithic axe morphology

    Author : Deborah Olausson; Arkeologi; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Lithic technology; Neolithic; flint axes; stone axes; practical trials; style;

    Abstract : Through practical experiments, edge-wear analysis, and the study of archaeological collections, the dissertation explores the complex relationship between style and function in a specific class of artifacts: the Neolithic axe. The results of the three-part approach described above, when applied for instance to thin-butted axes from the Funnel Beaker Culture, indicated that there was no clear-cut cass of unusable prestige axes, but rather that axe length more likely reflected practical rather than stylistic considerations.
