Record #144184:

Assebakte tombs and row-hearths. Did the Sámi once practice cremation? / Povl Simonsen.

Title: Assebakte tombs and row-hearths. Did the Sámi once practice cremation? / Povl Simonsen.
Author(s): Simonsen, Povl.
Date: 1997.
In: Acta Borealia. (1997.), Vol. 14(2) (1997)
Abstract: Since 26 excavated Assebakte tombs were first mentioned in 1979, new finds have been made in Norway, Sweden and Finland. Current estimate is that they may have been graves, but may have been outdoor ritual fireplaces. Bones may be animal or human. No doubt exists that they copy shape of house.
