Record #153854:

Prosjekt "Steinalder på Svalbard" - Revurderinger av tidligere funn og resultater fra nye undersøkelser / Hein B. Bjerck.

Title: Prosjekt "Steinalder på Svalbard" - Revurderinger av tidligere funn og resultater fra nye undersøkelser / Hein B. Bjerck.
Translated title: The project "Stone Ages on Svalbard" - Reevaluations of earlier finds and results of new research.
Author(s): Bjerck, Hein B.
Date: 1999.
Language: Norwegian.
In: Svalbard. Sysselmannens Rapportserie. (1999.), Vol. 1 (1999)
Abstract: Article discusses earlier "finds" and describes reasons for choice of Akseløya for new search. It is most unlikely that early man never came to Svalbard, when even more remote parts were visited or even inhabited. Once there, hunters would have found plenty of prey. From West, sea conditions are worse than from East, but longest ice stretch is shorter, unless one comes via Franz Josef Land. On other hand, Svalbard reindeer are genetically related to N American caribou. Neither old "finds" nor new were definitely man-made, let alone Stone Age.
