Record #41634:

Settlement and occupations in the Younger Stone Age / Povl Simonsen.

Title: Settlement and occupations in the Younger Stone Age / Povl Simonsen.
Author(s): Simonsen, Povl.
Date: 1965.
Publisher: Luleå: Norrbottens Museum
In: Hunting and fishing. Nordic symposium on life in a traditional hunting and fishing milieu in prehistoric times and up to the present day. (1965.),
Abstract: 25 years of excavations at Varanger Fjord and in Pasvik valley found much material from dwellings, graves, fire places and trapping structures. Report lumps together last 2.5 millennia BC. Marine mammals were half bone remains, fish half remainder, but their bones decay. Ratio whales:seals = 1:3. Seals and whales, all small, were harpooned, fishing was by hand line. Birds were hunted by bow and arrow. Reindeer remains were few except for tools, as deer would have been hunted inland. Dogs were used on land. Guess is that population was 150 - too many for fixed abode, but possible if clan migrated.
