Hav och Strand: stenteknologi och marin anpassning på Gotland under Senboreal/Tidigatlantisk tid
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The essay circulates around the technological analysis of flint material from four localities around the Baltic Sea basin. The analysis was created to investigate the question of where the first Gotlandic settlers originated from and to give clues about the colonization process. The investigated material was collected during the fall of 2011 and a correspondence analysis is used to analyze the collected material. The purpose of using a correspondence analysis is to test the method as a tool for investigating Mesolithic flint technologies. The essay also discusses marine hunter-gatherers, their economy and how their archeological remains differ from terrestrial hunter-gatherers.
