Jonstorp M2/M3 and Lake Ringsjön Na - different assemblages of archaeological material and perceptions of the Pitted Ware Culture in Scania, Southern Sweden

Leffler, Joen LU (2015) In Lund Archaeological Review 21. p.39-47
Abstract
The main aims and goals of this article are to present two assemblages of the Pitted Ware Culture (PWC) in the province of Scania, southern Sweden. One comes from an inland site named Na, located on the northern shore of Lake Ringsjön. Na was excavated in the 1880s.

The other site, Jonstorp, is located in north-western Scania and is a coastal site. The sites have historically been connected by a river, Bråån, which makes them good subjects for studying to the use of inland and coastal sites of the PWC. Much of the economy of the sites complement each other, even though there are some differences in hunting, lithic technology and pottery.

The main aims and goals of this article are to present two assemblages of the Pitted Ware Culture (PWC) in the province of Scania, southern Sweden. One comes from an inland site named Na, located on the northern shore of Lake Ringsjön. Na was excavated in the 1880s.

The other site, Jonstorp, is located in north-western Scania and is a coastal site. The sites have historically been connected by a river, Bråån, which makes them good subjects for studying to the use of inland and coastal sites of the PWC. Much of the economy of the sites complement each other, even though there are some differences in hunting, lithic technology and pottery.

The secondary aim of this article is to present how archaeological as-semblages can be perceived in different ways due to statistics. During my work with this article I discovered quantities of formerly unknown material from the Na site, changing the statistics. This is also true regarding Jonstorp. The large assemblage excavated in the 1970s is included here, which alters the known statistics. The problem is illustrated using projectile points as an example. (Less)
