The advance of cultivation at its northern European limit : process or event?

Lahtinen, M. and Oinonen, M. and Tallavaara, M. and Walker, J. and Rowley-Conwy, P. (2017) 'The advance of cultivation at its northern European limit : process or event?', The Holocene., 27 (3). pp. 427-438.

Abstract

Dates for early cultivation in Finland obtained from pollen analysis and remains from archaeological sites are compared with the changes in population size derived from the summed calendar-year probability distributions. The results from these two independent proxies correlate strongly with one another indicating that population size and the advance of farming were closely linked to each other. Moreover, the results show that the adaptation and development of farming in this area was a complex process comprising several stages and with major differences between regions The most intensive expansion having occurred in and after the Iron Age. It is therefore more accurate to describe the introduction of farming into the area as a long-lasting process, rather than an event.
