Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to make the first comprehensive survey of inland sites with oblique points in the northernmost parts of Fennoscandia. The chronological and technological relation of these points with similar points from Mesolithic contexts discussed in earlier Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish studies is also assessed. After a presentation and analysis of the available data it is concluded that the oblique points on the northern inland sites date mainly between c. 5800−4700 calBC. It is further suggested that the discussed points in fact belong to a technological tradition that extended over the whole of eastern and northern Fennoscandia during the Late Mesolithic.
