Date: 1996.
Publisher: Copenhagen: Danish Polar Center
In: Paleo-Eskimo Cultures of Greenland - new perspectives in Greenlandic archaeology. (1996.), Vol. 5
Abstract: 107 Palaeo-Eskimo sites are now known from district; most have yielded surface collections of stone tools and flakes of various materials. Paper presents material, and method for analysing its chronological aspects, initially into Saqqaq and Dorset groups.
