This thesis investigates the landscape and archaeology of the Anunsjönån valley in the province of Ångermanland in the north of Sweden. The investigations are based on GIS analysis of previous finds, excavations and predictive modelling. The area was selected based on the author’s previous knowledge of the area and participation in excavations. This thesis is part of a larger work produced with Sjölander (Sjölander 2014), where the two authors collaborate on one geographic area but with different scales and focus. The author has focused on a larger scale, the landscape and the use of its resources, Sjölander has instead focused on intrasite scale in excavated settlements.
The study also have a temporal component focusing on the time between the deglaciation and 7000 BP. Results in the thesis point toward a possible earlier use of the study area than previously believed, but so far finds are lacking to conclusively support the results. A predictive model is also presented based on the natural geography of the study area and indicate possible locations to further investigate in the future.
