Title: Mefjordvaer. In the footsteps of hunters and fishermen / Asgeir Svestad.
Author(s): Svestad, Asgeir.
Date: 1995.
Publisher: Tromsø :
Abstract: Guide to history of North Norway and Namdalen, result of cooperation between Berg municipality, village and Troms County. Settlement has remains from 4500 BC, based on trapping, hunting, gathering and fishing, and was accessible only by sea. Modern archaeologists estimate Stone Age standard of living was quite good, with good tools, food and communications eastwards. Before 4500 BC was warm period and sea level rose. Then in colder period land rose. Earliest signs at village are from New Stone Age - 4500-1800 BC - on ridge. Houses, well dug in, resembled Saami gamme. Next remains are from Middle Ages - 1000 - 1500 AD - in unified Norway. Dried fish was traded for clay vessels, glass and textiles. Nets had been long used and trolling and long-line fishing now came in. Settlement was deserted in 1740s, but grew again in 1870s, drawing in fishermen from far.
