Record #41636:

Hunters and Amazons. Seasonal migrations in older hunting and fishing communities / Helmer Tegengren.

Title: Hunters and Amazons. Seasonal migrations in older hunting and fishing communities / Helmer Tegengren.
Author(s): Tegengren, Helmer.
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: Arab traders around 12th Cent. AD described far North where women lived with only children, as in Amazon stories. Governor of Archangel in 1894 found similar villages south of Barents Sea. Reason was men's seasonal travels to work around coast. Long trails led there and large groups made their way along these. Work included fishing, hunting and trading, as seas were open both ways in season. Migrants were Russians, Karelians and Saami. Most women stayed behind, with hard farm work and families. At worst, babies fed from raw cow's milk in horn hung over cots. As many died from malnutrition as from disease.
