2003 (English)In: Mesolithic on the Move: Proceedings from Meso 2000, the 6th international conference on the Mesolithic in Europe, 2003, 414-430 p.Conference paper (Other (popular scientific, debate etc.))
In this paper the Mesolithic in Northern Sweden is discussed in relation to the neolitization process in southern Scandinavia. It is argued that the late Mesolithic handle core tradition found throughout the region, spread from the south through people moving in the exchange networks and that it carried values important for the reproduction of these societies. A change in material symbolism that takes place at c 4500 cal BC is seen as the result of an ethnic process whereby northern hunter-gatherers actively, as a response to the neolithization, appropriated a new identity and thus new material symbols.
