The pioneers: the beginnings of Palaeo-Eskimo research in West Greenland / Jørgen Meldgaard.

Title: The pioneers: the beginnings of Palaeo-Eskimo research in West Greenland / Jørgen Meldgaard.
Author(s): Meldgaard, Jørgen.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Copenhagen: Danish Polar Center
In: Paleo-Eskimo Cultures of Greenland - new perspectives in Greenlandic archaeology. (1996.), Vol. 2
Abstract: Paper describes meetings from 1830s to discuss stone artefacts. C.Fleisher investigated middens at Qajaa in 1870 and recognised existence of Greenlandic stone age. C.Pfaff's collection was scorned in Denmark but welcomed in Sweden. T.Mathiassen temporarily killed both interest in stone age Greenland and its existence. Modern archaeologists use much more specific terms for stone material used, but ammaaq and killiaq have tradition on their side. Author concluded late in writing article that Kleinschmidt's 1871 dictionary is right - killiaq is silicified slate and ammaaq is flint.
