  1. 1. Prehistoric diet transitions : an archaeological perspective

    Author : Kerstin Lidén; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES;

    Abstract : This is a study of prehistoric diet transitions within the Baltic area during the Stone Age. More specific the changes in diet expected to be found when hunter-gatherer subsistence is changed into a farming subsistence. This transition should be able to detect in the bone material as changes in trace element amounts and changes in stable isotopes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ancient genomics of Baltic seals : Insights on the past Baltic grey seal and harp seal populations

    Author : Maiken Hemme Bro-Jørgensen; Kerstin Lidén; Morten Tange Olsen; Aikaterini Glykou; Olle Karlsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : Ancient DNA; Baltic Sea; DNA preservation; extinction; mitogenome; seal hunting; sex identification; Scientific Archaeology; arkeologi med inriktning mot laborativ arkeologi;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to study and describe the ancient populations of grey and harp seals in the Baltic Sea, and to present new methodological approaches for general use in ancient DNA studies.The dissertation is comprised of five studies: a review of the use of paleogenetics in studying ancient human-marine mammal interactions; a method paper investigating patterns of DNA preservation in ancient pinniped samples; a method paper presenting a genetic sex identification method for ancient pinnipeds; a population genomic study of the Baltic grey seal; and a population genomic study of the now extinct Baltic harp seal.

  3. 3. Dealing With Reservoir Effects in Human and Faunal Skeletal Remains : Understanding the radiocarbon dating of aquatic samples

    Author : Jack Dury; Gunilla Eriksson; Kerstin Lidén; Peter Jordan; Johannes van der Plicht; Philippa Ascough; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Radiocarbon Dating; Reservoir Effects; Bayesian; Modelling; Palaeodiet; Stable Isotopes; Skeletal Remains; Collagen; Scientific Archaeology; arkeologi med inriktning mot laborativ arkeologi;

    Abstract : Archaeology relies on the ordering of past events to study cultural developments. This has traditionally been achieved by looking at the stratigraphic depths of materials relative to one another. In this way, chronologies of past technological progressions and stylistic changes can be built. READ MORE

  4. 4. Norm and difference : Stone Age dietary practice in the Baltic region

    Author : Gunilla Eriksson; Kerstin Lidén; Birgit Arrhenius; Michael Richards; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; diet; norm; variation; Mesolithic; Neolithic; Sweden; Latvia; stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes; radiocarbon; reservoir effect; dogs; breastfeeding; gender; Archaeology subjects; Arkeologiämnen;

    Abstract : Stone Age research on Northern Europe frequently makes gross generalizations about the Mesolithic and Neolithic, although we still lack much basic knowledge on how the people lived. The transition from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic in Europe has been described as a radical shift from an economy dominated by marine resources to one solely dependent on farming. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genomic insights into the population history of circumpolar Arctic dogs

    Author : Tatiana Richtman Feuerborn; Anders Hansen; Love Dalen; Mikkel Holger Strander Sinding; Kerstin Liden; Matthew Collins; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Dogs; Arctic; Inuit; Migration; Siberia; Greenland; Sled Dog; Scientific Archaeology; arkeologi med inriktning mot laborativ arkeologi;

    Abstract : The Siberian and North American Arctic have both borne witness to numerous migrations of humans and with them their dogs. This PhD thesis is based on whole genome data from 22 Siberian dogs and 72 North American Arctic dogs, in addition to 186 mitochondrial genomes Siberian and North American Arctic dogs. READ MORE
