Professor emeritus of archaeology
As professor emeritus I'm trying to complete the research I couldn't get done when I was teaching.
The 50 latest publications is shown on this page. See all publications in Cristin here →
Circumpolar archaeology: northern Fennoscandia, Kola Peninsula; formerly, Labrador-Eastern Arctic, Greenland
Hunter-gatherer social complexity (particularly the period ca. 2000 BC in Finnmark and on the Kola Peninsula)
Reindeer hunting to herding transitions; organization and management of hunting landscapes (hunting-pit systems and Commons management)
Lithic raw material sources and use in Finnmark's Stone Age
Knowledge construction in archaeology: theory, research history; cognitive science perspectives
Methods: varying degrees of engagement with geoarchaeology, paleoclimate, shellfish analysis, radiocarbon dating
As a new professor emeritus I no longer have teaching. However, previously I taught a range of courses, primarily: Introduction to Archaeology, Archaeology eks.Fak. (philosophy of science/knowledge construction in archaeology), method course, history of archaeology/theory, circumpolar archaeology, north Fennoscandian Stone Age, global themes (i.e. human evolution, early agriculture, state societies, colonialism and world-systems), and hunter-gatherers.
I also advised several hovedfag/masters students and some PhD students.
