    Research interests

    Current projects:

    Stone Age Demographics. PI, funded by the Norwegian Research Council 2017-2022. The project investigates demographics patterns in northern Norway, particularly western Finnmark during the period 9000-0 BC. some of the issue we focus on are fluctuations in population size, spatial distribution and the contemporaneity of dwellings at sites. 

    Stone Age Pyrotechnologies When the first hunter-fishers arrived in northern Norway shortly after the end of the last Ice Age there was only very sparse vegetaion. How did they heat their dwellings, how did they prepare their food and how did this affect their preception of the environment?

    Research group:

    SARG Leader of the Sub-Arctic Stone Age Research Group, which is a forum for Stone Age archaeology in Tromsø, and which collaborates with scholars at other institutions nationally and internationally. 

    Academia.edu

    Themes:

    • Stone Age in Northern Fennoscandia; I work predominantly with the period 6000-1500 BC, that is from the end of the Early Stone Age/Mesolithic through the Late Stone Age/Neolithic and into the Early Metal period/Bronze Age. I am particularly interested in the contacts and regional differentiation across northern Norway, northern Sweden, Finland and northwestern Russia.
    • Hunter-gatherer societies past and present; Knowledge on historical and ethnographic hunter-fisher-gatherers may provide pertinent insight about the significant variation also amongst prehistoric groups.
    • Interregional and multicultural interaction; we are increasingly aware that there were marked differences in livelihood and practices also amongst hunter-gatherers in the past. This provides the background for both social and economic interaction between groups.
    • Past social and cultural variation with a particular interest in gender and identity; to what extent and how are we able to study social relations in past societies, such as gender roles, kinship, power structures and ethnic differentiation?
    • Prehistoric rituals and religion; material culture is a key element also in world views, beliefs and rituals. Is is therefore a relevant and intersting research field also for archaeology.
