Social Change and the Environment in Nordic Prehistory: Evidence from Finland and northern Canada

SCENOP is an ESF Histories from the North BOREAS project that will seek to identify regularities and differences in human responses to rapid environmental change in prehistory in two widely separated but environmentally comparable circumpolar paleo-estuaries, the Yli-Ii area of Northern Finland and the Wemindji area of James Bay in Quebec (map of activites). SCENOP will examine archaeological and paleo-environmental evidence of transitions in the prehistory of both regions.
