      We present new data on Early Mesolithic settlements in northern Sweden and discuss the process of pioneer colonization. A new set of radiocarbon dates from archaeological sites push deglaciation of northern Fennoscandia further back in time and demonstrate the rapid arrival of pioneer settlers. Environmental data reveal a highly productive early postglacial setting with plant communities.   ID: - View Book Page - Edit In OJS This volume explores technology and communication in the early settlements of Northern Europe. The chapters discuss case studies and present overviews from the early and middle Mesolithic of Northern Europe.
