Archaeological investigations in 2017 during the Stone Age Demographics multi-scale exploration of population variations and dynamics research project
Field surveys on the island Årøya, Alta municipality, Finnmark county
As part of the Research Council of Norway research project no. 261760 Stone Age Demographics: multi-scale exploration of population variations and dynamics, filed surveys were undertaken at Årøya, Alta municipality, Finnmark county, in week 32, 2017.
The aim of the survey was to collect data on Stone Age settlement for the research project.
Årøya is the only larger island in the Altafjord. It was considered favourably situated for Stone Age settlement, and relatively few Stone Age remains were known before the survey. The potential and value of a survey of the island for the larger project was considered high.
