Southern Scandinavia experienced significant environmental changes during the early Holocene. Shoreline displacement reconstructions and results from several zooarchaeological studies were used to describe the environmental changes and the associated human subsistence and settlement development in the Hano Bay region of southern Sweden during the Mesolithic. GIS-based palaeogeographic reconstructions building on shoreline displacement records from eastern Skane and western Blekinge together with...

We present evidence of a submerged early Holocene landscape off the Blekinge coastline in the Baltic Sea, dating to the Yoldia Sea and Initial Littorina Sea Stages when the water level was lower than at present. 14C dated wood remains obtained by surveillance diving and new archaeological findings in combination with bathymetric analyses and interpolations between other sites across the Baltic Sea were used for refinement of the shoreline displacement history of the region. The new results revea...

Under istider, nar stora mangder havsvatten var bundet i inlandsisar, var den globala havsnivan lagre an idag och stora delar av kontinentalsockeln torrlagd. Den senaste istiden (cirka 115 000–12 000 ar sedan) var inget undantag, da torrlagda omraden utvecklades till ekologiskt rika kustomraden som mojliggjorde manniskans spridning over varlden. Nar inlandsisarna smaltesteg havsnivan och dessa landskap dranktes. I dag finns rester och lamningar fran dessa landskap och dess invanare val bevarade ...

Along parts of the Hano Bay coast in south-eastern Sweden, remains of a submerged landscape can be found down to depths of almost 25 m b.s.l. The coastal landscape was formed during two periods of lowered water levels in the Baltic Basin: the Yoldia Sea and the Initial Littorina Sea stages. In order to reconstruct the local environment and shoreline displacement during the Yoldia Sea and Ancylus Lake stages, sediment sequences were obtained at 4.5, 17.5 and 18.7 m b.s.l. Detailed bathymetric map...

Abstract During the Early and Mid-Holocene significant changes in the ecology and socio-cultural spheres occurred around the Baltic Sea. Because of the underlying climatic changes and thus environmental alterations, the area was the scene for various cultural developments during the period under investigation. In the course of the melting of the glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age, isostatic and eustatic movements caused continual changes to the Baltic Sea basin. Changes in water level, howe...

Remains of a submerged landscape around the mouth of a small river are preserved off the Baltic Sea coast at Havang in south-eastern Sweden. Organic-rich sediment ridges with abundant wood remains and archaeological artefacts extend 3 km from the modern coast to depths of at least 20 m below the present sea level. This exceptionally well-preserved material gives evidence of a lagoonal environment surrounded by a pine-dominated forest, which was inhabited by Mesolithic humans during two low-stand...

The Baltic basin has experienced extensive water-level fluctuations since the last deglaciation. During two occasions of lower than present water levels, c. 11,700–10,200 and 9800–8000 cal BP, areas along the present-day coast of the Hano Bay in south-eastern Sweden were exposed and pine-dominated forests were established. Around the mouth of the Verkean River at the Havang site, remains of this landscape occur in the form of organic-rich lacustrine deposits and well-preserved stumps and trunks ...
