Description

The presence of permanent dwellings are among the most commonly used indicators of decreased residential mobility in prehistoric societies , but, unless we understand the factors involved in the dwelling constructions, or the formation processes of the dwelling remains, misinterpretations of settlement patterns are likely to occur. We explore traditions of dwelling reoccupation and settlement stability among marine foragers in Aukra, Central Norway by a comparison with two other coastal areas with abundant and well documented sites, and very different long-term dwelling and settlement histories: The Beagle Channel in Tierra del Fuego and Varanger in North Norway.
