  1. 1. Neolithic Fisheries Osteoarchaeology of Fish Remains in the Baltic Sea Region

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för arkeologi och antikens kultur

    Author : Carina Olson; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Neolithic fisheries; local and regional ecosystems; species variation; burnt and unburnt bones; representativeness; contextual quantification; fishing technology; spatial patterns; HUMANITIES and RELIGION History and philosophy subjects Archaeology subjects; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Historisk-filosofiska ämnen Arkeologiämnen; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : The variety of fish species found at the archaeological sites indicates the exploitation of local and regional ecosystems. The focus of the fisheries varies from site to site. The study is based on the analyses of faunal materials from 10 archaeological sites from Eastern Middle Sweden, Gotland, and Åland dating to approximately 3800 – 1850 B.C. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet

    Author : Deborah Olausson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1983]
    Keywords : 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.

    Abstract : Isotope analyses on human and faunal skeletal remains from different Swedish Neolithic archaeological contexts are here applied as a means to reconstruct dietary strategies and mobility patterns. The chronological emphasis is on the Middle Neolithic period, and radiocarbon dating constitutes another central focus. READ MORE

  4. 4. Migration in Prehistory : DNA and stable isotope analyses of Swedish skeletal material

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för arkeologi och antikens kultur

    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

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

    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
