Akia and Nipisat I: two Saqqaq sites in Sisimiut district, West Greenland / Finn Erik Kramer.

Title: Akia and Nipisat I: two Saqqaq sites in Sisimiut district, West Greenland / Finn Erik Kramer.
Author(s): Kramer, Finn Erik.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Copenhagen: Danish Polar Center
In: Paleo-Eskimo Cultures of Greenland - new perspectives in Greenlandic archaeology. (1996.), Vol. 6
Abstract: Akia was excavated between 1989-1991. Stone tools, flakes and remains of dwelling with box hearth were found. Site is interpreted as winter camp. Nipisat I is stratified site with extensive occupations from Middle and Late Saqqaq and traces of occasional occupation before that. All phases were probably summer/autumn camps. Large number of hitherto unknown Saqqaq tool types were found, particularly of organic material.
