Tågerup - fifteen hundred years of Mesolithic occupation in Western Scania, Sweden: a preliminary view.

Karsten, Per LU and Knarrström, Bo LU (2001) In European Journal of Archaeology 4(2). p.165-174
Abstract
The slopes of the Tågerup promontory in western Scania contain one of the largest known Mesolithic settlements that has ever been excavated in Scandinavia. The Tågerup site displays a unique combination of huts and houses, graves and wooden implements, flints and bones which constitute a 1500-year-long Mesolithic occupation sequence, dated 6500–5000 cal BC. During that time, there were gradual but far-reaching changes in settlement structure and organization, the use of the landscape, flint technology and food procurement strategies.
