Excavations on the island Melkoya in North Norway brought traces of settlement from Mesolithikum to the early metal times to the open. The finds show that since prehistory long-range contacts between Melkoya and cultures in southern and eastern regions were maintained.

Life in the stoneage can not have been any dance on roses, anyway, in that case, probably without shoes. No dentalcream, plastic cards, houses or comfy chairs. Not even pants...Completely hopeless? Would you change it for this?

But the stoneage boys should not be underestemated. In little boats, canoe size, they went out on the fjords to catch whales! Some with spears and some with nets. Hmmm...:fviking: And this is written in stone....
Impressive...

Many of these guys were nomads, and followed the reindeer flocks wanderings.
They were great hunters, and their gods are of the real old ones. Maybe Uller, maybe Skadi originally are of these pantheons..?
