Record #207909:

Radiocarbon dating of musk-ox (Ovibos moschatus) bones from the Thule region, northwest Greenland / Ole Bennike.

Title: Radiocarbon dating of musk-ox (Ovibos moschatus) bones from the Thule region, northwest Greenland / Ole Bennike.
Author(s): Bennike, Ole.
Date: 2014.
In: Polar Record. (2014.), Vol. 50(253) (2014)
Abstract: Reports on eight new radiocarbon-dated musk-ox (Ovibos moschatus) finds from Thule region, which provide evidence that region was colonised by musk-oxen in Late Holocene, at time when area was probably uninhabited. Size of musk-ox population probably peaked during Medieval Warm Period, owing to richer vegetation and low hunting pressure from Late Dorset people.
