dc.description.abstractThe Scandinavian Stone Age discourse is characterised by a heavy bias towards flint. This paradox is partially a result of inheriting research traditions from flint-heavy regions, and Norway s position on the margins. In an attempt to address Norwegian Stone Age questions with a different approach to the material record, this study focuses instead on quartzite material at two sites in the Norwegian interior, where flint is sparse and alternatives dominate the assemblages from the sites. The study is a technological analysis and interpretation of lithic assemblages from the Mesolithic sites of Bjørkeli and Stene Terrace at Rena River, Åmot in Hedmark. The analysis in a chaîne opératoire methodological framework, with refitting as a primary method.eng
