Abstract [en]

The paper is a critical analysis of the present archaeological evidence for the pioneer setlment in Scandinavia. Based on a database of lithic blade technology from 63 dated sites dated to the Early Mesolithic, the authors evaluate  the evidence for an east european origin of the Middle Mesolithic culture. Using lithic as a proxy for cultural traditions it is argued that the evidence speaks for an east European origin of the Middle Mesolithic lithic tradition.
