    Ser man skelett eller ser man människor?: En studie kring repatriering och återbegravning av mänskliga kvarlevor.2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to examine the issue on how ancient human remains are or should be handled and dealt with from an ethical and archaeological perspective. This management has previously been based on what we today call racial biology, which shows how these issues have been neglected and assumed less worthy when it comes to how to treat indigenous people. In museums, archives, universities and medical institutions there are currently bone materials that science and indigenous people claim ownership of in different ways. Indigenous people believe that their ancestors have the right to rest in peace while science deems that human remains should be observed in order to preserve the past and monitor the future with the help of prehistoric knowledge. For a deeper understanding of how reburials and repatriation works, three case studies are presented. Two of these case studies are completed reburials, and the third case study is an ongoing process since 1949. In this paper a hermeneutic approach which is used to explain why human remains are the key to future studies, without involving our personal opinions.

    Archaeobotanical analysis of the Viking Age site Heimdalsjordet, Gokstad, Norway: A comparative study to species compositions and differences in preservation in south Scandinavia during the Viking Age2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis the plant macrofossil remains from the site Heimdalsjordet, nearby the Gokstad ship burial, are analysed on their species compositions and their relation to the depositional and preser- vational context. The majority of the botanical samples from this site have been derived from un- specified ditches, and the main means of preservation was carbonisation. This has yielded a high quantity of cereal grains, predominantly barley, and a fairly small weed assemblage.The results of this site are compared to the botanical assemblages from various other Viking Age sites in south Scandinavia. By comparing the material from Gokstad to the material found at the other sites, sometimes preserved under different conditions, it is possible to establish patterns in site func- tion and the place of the site within a bigger network of trade and import. Furthermore are the re- sults of the Scandinavian sites compared to a Dutch site, Dorestad, to get a view on the Viking Age on continental Europe.The analyses have showed that the plant macrofossil assemblage is not specifically rich, as compared to other sites, such as Hedeby and Kaupang. This lower diversity can be the result of various factors, including the position of the site in trade networks as well as the preservation conditions at the sites. Whereas the samples from Heimdalsjordet have been preserved by carbonisation, Hedeby and Kau- pang yielded samples that were derived from waterlogged contexts, such as wells and latrines.

    Boplatser och offerplatser: ekonomisk strategi och boplatsmönster bland skogssamer 700-1600 AD2003Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis primarily discusses the development of late Iron Age Saami settlement patterns in greater Norrland's forest area, from the establishment of the Settlements through to historical times. The Settlements are chiefly characterised by hearths, but it is also important to study Saami sacrificial sites when trying to understand the significance of the settlement patterns. Central to the thesis is how the archaeological material can be applied to questions concerning the introduction of reindeer herding.

    During the early Viking period a significant change in the settlement pattern of greater Norrland's inland occurs. New niches start to be exploited, moving away from the earlier shore-bound model. The Settlements are relocated to areas with good reindeer grazing land, by small streams, bogs and small lakes. The principal features are concentrations of hearths, which arise in large numbers, most often in groups of three to ten.

    A number of the artefacts found at the settlement sites are also found at Saami sacrificial sites from between 800 to 1350 AD, suggesting that the hearths should be studied in the context of Saami culture.

    A wide range of artefacts have been discovered during excavation of the Settlements, which suggests extensive contacts, mainly to the east and the Ladoga area, but also with Norway to the west. The artefacts display a continuity from the Viking period into the 1700's, and the dating of the hearths show a similar chronological spread.

    The study area has supported a reindeer herding forest Saami society during historical times, the settlement pattern of which has close similarities to that found under the Viking period. This implies that the settlement pattern that emerged during the Viking period can probably be related to an emergent reindeer herding system. Reindeer herding was undertaken in combination with hunting and fishing - so called semi-nomadism. It is suggested that the forest land Saami society become so dependent on reindeer herding during the Viking period, that it controlled the settlement pattern.

    The use of stone and hunting of reindeer: a study of stone tool manufacture and hunting of large mammals in the central Scandes c. 6000-1 BC1991Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis raises questions concerning prehistoric conditions in a high mountain region in central Scandinavia; it focuses on the human use of stone and on hunting principally of reindeer. An analysis of how the stone material was utilized and an approach to how large mammals were hunted result in a synthesis describing one interpretation of how the vast landscape of a region in the central Scandinavian high mountains was used. With this major aim as a base questions were posed concerning the human use of stone resources and possible changes in this use. Preconditions for the occurrence of large mammals as game animals and for hunting are also highlighted. A general perspective is the long time period over which possible changes in the use of stone and hunting of big game, encompassing the Late Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and to a certain extent the Early Iron Age.

    Considering the manufacture of flaked stone tools, debitage in the form of flakes from a dwelling, constitute the base where procurement and technology are essential. The occupation of the dwelling covers a period from the Late Mesolithic to the Bronze Age. Possible changes in lithic use are discussed based on an analysis of debitage which includes testing variables reflecting various steps in the process of flaked stone tool manufacture. Also, the results are discussed from a methodological aspect; the classificatory aspect of analyzing large flake assemblages is implied. The result of the flake analysis indicates differences in the use of stone from the Late Mesolithic to the Bronze Age/Early Iron Age. These differences are interpreted in a three-part chronological division and as theoretically proceeding in a manufacturing process of five steps including acquisition, reduction through three steps and use of completed tools. A pattern, dividing the Bronze Age use of stone from that of the Neolithic and Late Mesolithic is discerned and discussed in terms of changes in procurement strategies and technology. Also, social organization is touched upon.

    When approaching the issue of hunting the character of data differ; archaeological and palaeo-environmental data together comprise the base for a discussion of possible changes. This is based on a theoretical model applied in a hypothetical research design. Archaeological categories of remains relevant in hunting contexts together with ethnographic and traditional hunting techniques are discussed. They constitute the base and illustrate possible variables in the testing of the hypothetical model. Changes in the Holocene climate are clear, just as changes in the archaeological record are observable. Together these circumstances indicate changes in the hunting process.

    The structural changes in economy and society that occur in central and north Scandinavia during stone-using periods are discernible in the region studied here.

    Coastal Communities on the Move: House and Polity Interaction in Southern Ostrobothnia 1500 BC-AD 12010Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This work attempts to seek new insights in understanding the archeological phenomena traditionally labelled as the western Bronze Age and the coastal Pre-Roman cultures of Finland (1500 BC-AD 1), by studying the phenomena from a socioeconomic interaction and practice oriented community perspective. The basic line of thought is that it was the everyday life of the local agents and their interactions that constituted the local communities. Communities are seen as built from the bottom up by the interaction of various local agents. The organised agents, their practices and their mutual interaction on various scales of social organisation are regarded as the central factors that created and shaped the history of the communities. Problems that are addressed concern the interrelationship between the subsistence practices, habitation practices and the social organisation of the coastal communities. Houses and local polities are regarded as two basic social institutions that were essential for the structuration of the coastal communities and for their relation to external networks. I also address the issue of the various spatial and temporal scales that can be considered as essential for the structuration of the coastal communities, and furthermore how the coastal communities managed change over time. The geographical scope of this thesis is limited to the former province of Vaasa (Vaasan lääni/Vasa län) in western Finland, with a special emphasis on the coastal southern part of Ostrobothnia.  A suggested high-rank House from the Late Bronze Age is studied in Laihia. Methodologically a broad perspective with a comparative, diachronic and a multi-proxy approach is conducted in the study of the structuration of communities. The constitution of the communities is largely approached through themes that are related to landscape and settlement archaeology. Contextual analyses of the combinations of various subsistence and habitation practices form the basis for the identification of different community constituting subgroups of agents.

    The use of plants in ritual context during Antiquity in Bulgaria: overview of the archaeobotanical evidence2015Ingår i: Bulgarian e-Journal of Archaeology, ISSN 1314-5088, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 117-135Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Botanical remains from sanctuaries and necropolises provide valuable information about ancient religious practices. The current paper discusses old and new archaeobotanical data from Bulgaria and the use of plants in ritual context from Antiquity. The time span of the 44 considered sites (sanctuaries and necropolises) is between the 6th century BC and the 3rd century AD. Most of the sanctuaries in Bulgaria, where archaeobotanical remains have been studied, date to the Bronze and Iron Ages, and a large proportion represents the so called “pit fields”. Information concerning later periods is almost completely lacking. Some evidence on plant offerings is available from the necropolises of the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Although the archaeobotanical data from these sites are quite scarce, their increasing number allows the observation of some common tendencies. Cereals and pulses are most commonly identified at sanctuaries, while fruits are typical remains in the necropolises. Very often imported species (like stone pine, pistachio and olive) are found which testifies to existing contacts with adjacent regions (mainly the Mediterranean area and North Africa).

    Plant economy and vegetation of the Iron Age in Bulgaria: archaeobotanical evidence from pit deposits2017Ingår i: Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences, ISSN 1866-9557, E-ISSN 1866-9565, Vol. 9, nr 7, s. 1481-1494Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Major social and economical changes occurred in human societies during the Iron Age of Southeastern Europe: increasing structuring of societies, intensifying production and metal technologies and the establishment of a market economy. However, the related plant economy of the region is still poorly studied and understood. The Iron Age ‘pit field sites’ (groups of pits distributed over a certain area) in south-eastern Bulgaria were recently intensively excavated, and their study provides rich archaeobotanical assemblages, which are used for filling this gap in our knowledge. The current study presents the archaeobotanical information from 196 flotation samples from 50 Iron Age pits. The results show a wide range of annual crops, the most important of which seem to be hulled wheats (mainly einkorn), barley and also millet. A variety of pulses and fruits is retrieved, each in small quantities. Some species like Olea europaea and Cucumis melo are an indication for contacts with adjacent regions (especially the Mediterranean area). The archaeobotanical assemblages also documented the environment and land use, revealing the exploitation of a variety of habitats like cropland, open grassland, shrub land and wetland. The archaeobotanical analyses of the Iron Age pit fields show that this type of structures can be an important source of information on the Iron Age plant economy in the region.

    Iron Age Cultural Interactions, Plant Subsistence and Land Use in Southeastern Europe Inferred from Archaeobotanical Evidence of Greece and Bulgaria2018Ingår i: Archaeology Across Frontiersand Borderlands: Fragmentation and Connectivityin the North Aegean and the Central Balkansfrom the Bronze Age to the Iron Age / [ed] Stefanos Gimatzidis, Magda Pieniążek, Sila Mangaloğlu-Votruba, Vienna: Austrian Academy of Sciences , 2018, Vol. 9, s. 455s. 269-290Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper brings together old and new archaeobotanical evidence from 20 archaeological sites from Iron Age contexts spanning from the end of the 2nd millennium BC up to the end of the 4th century BC in northern Greece and southern Bulgaria. The sites are Karabournaki, Thessaloniki Toumba and Polichni in central Macedonia in northern Greece and Bresto, Malenovo, Dolno Cherkovishte, Kapitan Andreevo, Svilengrad and Dana Bunar in the region of south Bulgaria. A variety of cereals and pulses, already cultivated since Neolithic and Bronze Age times, are identified as potential culinary ingredients in both regions, yet the list of crops from northern Greece includes a wider diversity than that from the Bulgarian sites, especially regarding the fruit remains. Continuities and discontinuities of plant ingredients in space and time are discussed in relation to potential taphonomic biases. This new evidence from the region indicates that during the Iron Age this part of southeastern Europe shared common traditions in terms of the plant species consumed, with some differences already visible during the Late Bronze Age.

    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with the site, Tanum 1821:1, Tanum kommun, Västra Götalands län, Sverige (figure 1), where a number of soil samples have been collected in connection to a settlement with a preliminary dating to the Bronze Age. The site consisted of 11 hearths, 10 cooking pits, 1 cultural layer, 18 concentrations of fire-cracked stones, 3 post holes, 5 settlement pits and 9 other settlement features. The site had an extent of approximately 130 x 60 meters (E-W). The samples were collected in connection with an excavation conducted by Rio Kulturkooperativ.

    The bedrock in the area consists of granite. Till is the dominating soil type in the area with thin quaternary deposits further to the east. The site is situated approximately 65-70 m.a.s.l near a small river, the vegetation consists of mainly spruce with sporadic birches.

    Spatial Perspectives on Hearth Row Site Organisation in Northern Fennoscandia Through the Analysis of Soil Phosphate Content2016Ingår i: Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports, ISSN 2352-409X, E-ISSN 2001-1199, Vol. 5, s. 361-373Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this paper is to present new perspectives on the social and cultural aspects on spatial organisation of so called 'hearth rows' in Northern Fennoscandia. Previous studies have shown, based on geographical distribution and finds, that these sites are associated with native Sámi settlements and consist of linearly organised hearths dated to 800 - 1300 AD. In order to provide a deeper understanding of spatial behaviour and waste dispersal in hearth row settlements, information and data from three excavated sites is compiled, together with 14C analysis (bone and charcoal), detailed sampling and mapping of citric soluble soil phosphate, to enable a spatial analytical approach. On the basis of repeated spatial patterns observed in excavated and analysed data the authors provide new insights on the spatial organisation of these Sámi dwellings. Also, a generally accepted ethnographic model on how these dwellings and hearth areas were spatially organised is challenged.

    Abstract [en]

    The Stone Age settlement site outside the village of Vuollerim in northern Sweden was first discovered in the 1980s and has been an important part of the research regarding Mesolithic and Neolithic in Norrland. One of the houses on the site was named Norpan 2 and nearly fifteen hundred soil samples were collected and stored during the excavations between 1983 and 1987. This study has focused on analysing nearly one thousand of the collected soil samples using phosphate and magnetic susceptibility analysis to further study activity on site and social structure. Furthermore, due to the large quantity of samples, a short comparison of soil sampling density was made to perceive the effect sampling density has on the interpretation of soil mapping. The results of the study indicate that the site has a large deposit of Magnetite (Fe3O4) in the soil that gives unusual MS-readings from the collected samples. The results also show a bipolar separation of finds and geoarchaeological traces within the house. This distinctive separation has been argued as an indication of dividing the space between families, but this study indicate that this separation might be due to house being divided between different activities but the evidence is not conclusive enough without further studies. The study has also shown that while a high density soil mapping gives much greater details it is still possible to gain the necessary information with fewer samples. In conclusion, it is still too early to conclude the investigations at the Vuollerim site and with the added data from this study and new information there is still more to learn from the Vuollerim site.KeywordsPhosphate analysis, Magnetic susceptibility, Vuollerim, Norpan 2, Geoarchaeology, Soil mapping

    En studie av landskapet kring Norra Anundsjöån - med fokus på perioden 10000-7000 BP2014Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    The history of early cereal cultivation in northernmost Fennoscandia as indicated by palynological research2014Ingår i: Vegetation History and Archaeobotany, ISSN 0939-6314, E-ISSN 1617-6278, Vol. 23, nr 6, s. 821-840Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The age of the introduction of cereal cultivation in northern Europe has long been debated by researchers from many disciplines, in particular archaeology and palaeoecology. Over the past 40 years extensive palynological data have been collected concerning pre-industrial land use in northern Fennoscandia. This paper reviews palynological studies that include records of fossil cereal pollen from northernmost Sweden, Finland and Norway at latitudes north of 63A degrees N. The geographical extent of known early cultivation sites is constantly expanding, with more than 100 records of cereal pollen pre-dating ad 1700. The oldest records of scattered cereal pollen derive from Neolithic times. Periods of continuous cultivation, indicated by cereal pollen recorded recurrently in the sediment profiles, derive from the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age. Collectively, the reviewed pollen records indicate that cereal cultivation was first introduced into areas close to the coast and later to the interior, and that it may have been practiced locally long before sedentary settlements based on intensive cultivation were established during medieval times. The data do not indicate a latitudinal spread of cultivation from south to north. However, methodological problems relating to pollen morphology of cereals, site characteristics and lack of connections to archaeologically excavated sites imply that the value of many early cereal pollen finds remains unclear. To increase our understanding of the context in which cereal cultivation was introduced in northernmost Fennoscandia, multidisciplinary studies integrating palaeoecology, archaeology and history are needed.

    Contacts and trade at Late Bronze Age Hazor: aspects of intercultural relationships and identity in the Eastern Mediterranean2008Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Hazor’s role in an international Late Bronze Age context has long been indicated but never thoroughly investigated. This role, I believe, was more crucial than previously stressed. My assumption is based on the very large size of this flourishing city which, according to documents, possessed ancient traditions of diplomatic connections and trade with Mesopotamia in the Middle Bronze Age. Its strategic position along the most important N-S and E-W main trade routes, which connected Egypt with Syria-Mesopotamia and the Mediterranean Sea with the city and beyond, promoted contacts. Hazor was a city-state in Canaan, a province under Egyptian domination and exploitation during this period, a position that also influenced the city’s international relations.

    Methodologically the thesis examines areas of the earlier and the renewed excavations at Hazor, with the aim of discussing the city’s interregional relations and cultural belonging based on external influences in architectural structures (mainly temples), imported pottery and artistic expressions in small finds, supported by written evidence. Cultic influences are also considered.

    Various origin and find contexts of the imported and culturally influenced material can be recognized, which imply three concepts in the field of interaction studies found within the framework of a modified World Systems Theory and also according to C. Renfrew’s Peer Polity Interaction model:

    1) The northern influenced material at Hazor should be understood in the context of cultural identity. It continues from earlier periods and is maintained through external trade and the regional interaction between Canaanite city-states in the north, resulting in certain cultural homogeneity.

    2) A core-periphery approach is used to explain the special unequal relation between Canaan and Egypt, in which Hazor might have possessed an integrating semi-peripheral role, a kind of diplomatic position between Egypt and its northern enemies. The city’s loyalty to Egypt is hinted at in documents and in the increasing evidences of emulation in elite contexts appearing on the site.

    3) A model of ‘interregional interaction networks’ describes the organization of the trade which provided certain consumers at Hazor with the Aegean and Cypriote pottery and its desirable content. The cargo of the Ulu Burun and Cape Gelidonya ships and documents show that luxury items were transited from afar through Canaan. Such long-distance trade / exchange require professional traders that established networks along the main trade routes. The thesis suggests that Hazor possessed a node position in such a network.

    Keywords: Hazor, Canaan, Eastern Mediterranean, Late Bronze Age, contacts, trade, temple architecture, Mycenaean pottery, Cypriote pottery, interregional interaction networks, emulation, peer polity interaction, centre-periphery approach.

    Kulturarv- vad vinner och vad försvinner?: En studie på om synen på arkeologiska fornfynd har förändrats under 1900-talet fram tills idag2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper will discuss whether you can detect a possible alteration in views of archaeological artefacts during the 1900’s until 2014 by local history societies and what their views are today. It will also discuss other aspects that can have contributed to potential changed views on the artefacts. The other aspects that will be investigated are heritage conservation, politics, museums/policies and disposal of archaeological artefacts. This paper will also discuss the Swedish definition of the concept “archaeological artefacts”, and if newspapers have contributed to a different view of archaeological artefacts. The conclusions of this paper are that local history societies have different views of archaeological artefacts, but not all of them have a changed view and some of them have similar views to other history societies. One more thing detected might be a drift between the public and the archaeologists which may have been affected by politics? These aspects have contributed to a different view but in different ways and not always at the same time. Newspaper have been a contributor to changed views because they spread information that is not always correct or fair and therefore misguide the general population – for example the definition of an archaeological artefact. Disposal of archaeological artefacts does not happen as often in Swedish museums as newspaper articles make it seem and the local history societies do not approve of disposal but concede that if it must happen, albeit with good documentation. A final conclusion is that things change when time passes, and so do views and opinions, but not always as much as one may think.

    Kulturmiljöer och klimat i Västerbottens län: analys av konsekvenserna av ett förändrat klimat2017Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    De förändringar av klimatet som vi kan förvänta oss ske i framtiden kommer att få betydande konsekvenser inom enmängd olika områden. För att kunna hantera effekterna av ett förändrat klimat måste vi vara förberedda. Vi måsteveta vilka effekterna sannolikt kommer att bli och ha en strategi för hur dessa effekter ska hanteras.Klimatförändringar kommer att påverka många olika kulturmiljöer på många olika sätt. Allt från lagskyddade byggnadsminnenoch fornlämningar till kulturlandskap och det gröna kulturarvet kommer att påverkas. Många kulturmiljöerriskerar dessutom att påverkas negativt i samband med olika klimatanpassningsåtgärder samt förändringar inäringsverksamhet och markanvändning som är kopplade till nya förutsättningar i ett förändrat klimat.Arbetet med att hantera kulturmiljöer och de negativa effekter som de kommer att få av framtida klimatförändringarär en stor utmaning. För att lyckas ”klimatanpassa” kulturmiljöer krävs ökade kunskaper om vilka kulturmiljöer somkommer att påverkas och på vilket sätt samt bra strategier för att hantera detta. Detta arbete kommer sannolikt intebara handla om att alla kulturmiljöer ska bevaras, utan det kommer även att omfatta prioriteringar av kulturmiljöersom bör bevaras framför andra samt strategier för dokumentation av fornlämningar som inte kommer att kunna bevaras.För att detta ska kunna genomföras krävs, förutom förbättrade kunskapsunderlag, även en ökad kunskap hosoch etablerat samarbete mellan myndigheter, institutioner, forskare (både inom kulturmiljövården och inom andrabranscher) och allmänheten kring dessa frågor.Denna rapport är ett första försök att lyfta framtida klimatförändringars effekter på kulturmiljöer i Västerbottens länmen den är absolut inte på något sätt uttömmande. I takt med att ny kunskap och nya planeringsunderlag tas fram såkan ytterligare och bättre analyser genomföras. För att hantera och skydda kulturmiljöer i ett förändrat klimat kommerett aktivt angreppssätt att krävas med god förkunskap och bra åtgärder för att minska effekterna men också enförberedd organisation och bra strategier för att snabbt kunna hantera negativa konsekvenser som är mer eller mindreakuta.

    Palaeoentomological reconstruction of the environment during the Late Quaternary: A comparison between living species in Europe and regionally extinct in British Isles2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    During the Late Quaternary, abrupt climate and cultural changes took place and made alternations to the past landscape. Climatic phenomena such as expand of ice masses,sea level rise, high and low temperatures, migration of humans, decline and increase of forest areas and more changes were the reason of changing the biodiversity of species and the formation of the land. Here cartographic maps with the use of GIS will be presented from reconstructions of the environment during the Late Quaternary, which then will be interpreted from coleopteran fossils for the whole of Europe. Furthermore, living and extinct species will be compared, in which the focus of the extinction will be in the British Isles. Each period will show a different abundance of species, the regional disappearance of the species will be depicted by the abrupt changes in the landscape during the past. Anthropogenic and natural factors will be discussed and be compared with the habitats of the species.

    Samlingsboplatser?: En diskussion om människors möten i norr 7000 f Kr - Kr f med särskild utgångspunkt i data från Ställverksboplatsen vid Nämforsen2009Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with meetings between peoples during prehistoric times in the northern part of Norrland, Sweden. Particular attention is paid to the possible occurrence of more temporary meetings between people in larger groups at aggregation camps during the period ca 7000 – 0 BC. The study has had the aim of increasing our understanding of how peoples’ meetings and contact networks may have been framed.

    Thirteen sites that previous research has interpreted to be aggregation camps within our field of study have been analysed and interpreted. These are: Jokkmokk, Purkijaur, Nelkerim, Porsi, Lundfors, Norrfors, Överveda, Rappasundet, Hälla, Lillberget, Glösa, Sörånäset and Ställverksboplatsen (the Ställverket site). The Ställverket site at Näsåker (Nämforsen) has been the object of particular study. It has also been viewed in a broader context by analysis and interpretation of other ancient remains in the neighbouring area. I have argued that some interpretations arrived at in earlier research are problematical and that none of the thirteen sites can be said with certainty to have been an aggregation camp. Thus aggregation camps seem not usually to have been a part of the contact network in the area of study.

    Instead of using aggregation camps as meeting-places, the people involved seem, at certain times and places, to have maintained contact with each other by means of meetings at the base camps, notably the winter sites. These sites seem to have been rather sedentary and are positioned at fairly even distances from one another. I call this model the base camp model. Some grounds for applying the base camp model seem to exist at certain places in the inland region from the end of the Mesolithic era up to 0 BC. After that contact networks seem to change. In the coastal district it seems possible to apply it to some places from the transition between the Mesolithic – Neolithic Age up to about 2500 BC. Thereafter the picture is unclear. The study does also emphasise however that more in-depth studies are needed to strengthen the viability of the base camp model’s applicability, that there are still big gaps in the material and that much work still remains to be done in order to solve the problems of how aggregation camps can best be defined and how they can be identified archaeologically.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the possibility of paleoentomology as a proxy in garden archaeology research. Garden contexts can prove difficult to identify and interpret due to the many changes the contexts go through during their activity period. Mixing of materials, harvesting and cultivation of many different plants will affect the environmental data that is retrieved from them and thus our interpretation of horticulture. This essay looks at the contexts and materials involved in the gardening process; irrigation sources, fertilizer, garden plant macrofossils and modern ecological insect and host plant relationships. The goal is to suggest a conceptual indicator group of insect and plant species that could aid in the identification of garden context and the in situ growth of relic plants. Paleoentomological information from the relating contexts (middens, composts, wells etc.) and other indicator groups have been included along with the ecological data in order to get a more complex picture over the garden contexts and their varying content. For instance, many of the plants found in garden soils are recorded as host plants to several insect species. This paper argues that investigation of these relationships can aid garden archaeology and further our understanding of herbivorous insects’ and associated species’ relationships to plant domestication in pre-history.

    Brygder och besvärjelser: En arkeobotanisk studie av medicinalväxter och den medeltida staden Nya Lödöse2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of medicinal plants is a popular subject that, at least in the archaeological sciences, has met a lot of criticism due to the lack of physical data. It is problematic to distinguish the medicinal plants from local flora since many herbs that were used often could be found in the nearby vegetation.  The purpose of this essay is to archaebotanically analyze samples from the medieval town Nya Lödöse and compare the data with a previous analysis from the site and a literature study. The herbs meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria), lady’s mantle (Alchemilla sp.), sweet gale (Myrica gale), hop (Humulus lupulus), common tormentil (Potentilla erecta), St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), henbane (Hyoscyamus niger), catnip (Nepeta cataria) and motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) have been selected for closer analysis since they occur with frequency in the historical medicinal texts and in previous analysis made on the site. The aim is to investigate the similarity between the samples and what is written about the plants in the different medieval medicinal documentations. The paper will also discuss the different contemporary views on medicine and the people who practiced it, and thus extend the subject for future studies. The Nya Lödöse locale is interesting since it was active in a period of increased trade, turbulent times of political power games, witch trials and ecclesiastical power. The harbor town of Nya Lödöse has had an intense history with numerous fires and invasions. In a time of reformation, when the plague had hit Gothenburg, the witch pyres were burning and the Dane was at hand, the need for medicine must have been great.

    Keywords: Archeobotany, middle ages, medicinal plants, Nya Lödöse, monastery medicine, indigenous medicine and witch craft.
