Abstract
Bog sites and wetland settlement during the Mesolithic: research from a bog in central Scania, southern Sweden The bogs Agerods Mosse and Ronneholms Mosse with their total area of 12 km(2), form a north-westerly arm of the Ringsjon Basin of central Scania, in the southernmost part of Sweden. In the 1940s and 1970s excavations of Early Mesolithic sites around and within the bog Agerods Mosse were carried out. In the middle of the 1990s new excavations were initiated in the bog Ronneholms Mosse for peat exploitation. A number of base camps and more than 100 small sites, most of them merely including a hearth and some refuse, have been identified. Stray finds of bone tools, deposits of flint blades, as well as parts of refuse layers have been... (More)
