Hearth and home of the Paleo-Eskimos (2003)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ulla Odgaard.

This article offers a methodological approach to study hearth features in general. The hearths of the Paleo-Eskimo tradition are often well preserved, which makes it possible to interpret which heating processes took place and their effects on the indoor climate of the dwelling. To obtain this type of information, recording of fire-cracked rocks within and in connection to hearths is of special importance. The Paleo-Eskimos made use of a versatile pyro-technology, adjustable to the most extreme...

Preliminary Assessment Report of the Archaeofauna from KNK 203 (E 74), a Norse Farm in the Eastern Settlement, Greenland (2007)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Konrad Smiarowski. Albína Hulda Pálsdóttir. Thomas McGovern.

The archaeofauna is still under study, and this report presents only a partial overview of the collection. However, a number of observations can be made at this stage: • The collection has been subject to severe attrition from freeze-thaw cycling and repeated flooding and drying. Only the most dense bone elements survive, and even teeth are badly preserved in some contexts. • While the conditions of preservation will limit the comparative value of the E74 archaeofauna and will probably make a...

DOCUMENT Full-Text Thomas McGovern. Albína Hulda Pálsdóttir.
