Ala-Jalve: spatial, technological, and behavioral analyses of the lithic assemblage from a Stone Age-Early Metal Age site in Utsjoki, Finnish Lapland
Variety of analyses concerning the artefact assemblage of the Ala-Jalve site in Utsjoki, northernmost Finnland. This study focuses on morphological and spatial analyses of lithic debitage, an artefact category, oft-forgotten but constituting 94% of the site. In this way problems concerning chronology, dates and relationships with culture history of the surrounding area could be resolved.
