The focus of this paper is on regionality, the use of main territories and how they are interlinked in the Mesolithic in south Norway during the culmination of the settlement of the mountain area, ...
Abstract The aim of this paper is to interpret the occurrence of microscopic charcoal in pollen diagrams in the Lateglacial in South Norway. The methods used are palynology, radiocarbon dates and ethnographical analogy with charcoal as possible proxy data for anthropogenic activity. The possible origins of the charcoal are natural lightning-ignited fire, secondary deposition, long-distance transport and anthropogenic activities. The sixteen sites are discussed compared to their specific location...

Based on a theoretical approach of diaspora theory and the use of ethnographical comparative analysis, it is argued that the early settlement of South Norway probably brought about diasporic conditions. Archaeological and natural science records are applied to discuss the migrations of mobile hunter-gatherers with a shamanistic reindeer culture from the Continent, after deglaciation of the Weichselian ice cap. This paper discusses the diasporic people's identity, their survival as a group, their...

Pollen analytical, archaeological, ethnological, historical and meteorological evidence are combined to establish a preliminary history of the Little Ice Age in a mountain area, Oystol, in SW Norway. A climatic deterioration in the period AD 1300-1800 is suggested. Ripening of barley in this period was uncertain at the summer farm areas (550-700 m a.s.l.) which were deserted in the first part of this period, and presumably also in the farm area of Hamrabo (300 m a.s.l.)
