My main academic interests deal with economic, social and ideological and aspects of prehistoric societies, and my research is currently concentrated on two different themes: (1) Stone Age coastal hunter-fishers in Northern Europe and (2) the human use of caves and rockshelters. My work on these themes is mainly based on own archaeological fieldwork at several sites in western Norway, on international cooperation with other archaeologists and also on extensive transdisciplinary collaboration. I am particularly engaged in discussing the emergence of sedentism, the introduction of farming, and also the demographic developments among the Stone Age hunter-fisher populations in Northern Europe. Concerning my research on caves and rockshelters, these are studied in a long-term perspective, and within a broad geographical frame. The preservation conditions for organic materials as well as their special character as “natural places” make them unique archaeological contexts for cross-disciplinary approaches. I am interested in how the caves and rockshelters were used, what they meant for people in different periods and regions, and also in how they have been perceived and contested up until the present day.
