Continuity and change in the Paleo-Eskimo prehistory of northern Ellesmere Island / Patricia D. Sutherland.

Title: Continuity and change in the Paleo-Eskimo prehistory of northern Ellesmere Island / Patricia D. Sutherland.
Author(s): Sutherland, Patricia D.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Copenhagen: Danish Polar Center
In: Paleo-Eskimo Cultures of Greenland - new perspectives in Greenlandic archaeology. (1996.),
Abstract: Examines Palaeoeskimo culture on island from ca. 4500 to 2200 BP. Argues that prehistory of region during this time may best be understood in terms of population continuity and local development, with variability considered largely as result of gradual temporal change. Also argues that Palaeoeskimos, like the historic Inuit, are more usefully considered as mosaic of local groups, each adapted to local environments and resources, rather than as widespread populations with relatively uniform technologies and adaptations.
