In other countries the subject is more accepted . In England the subject was taken seriously after the interpretation of Stonehenge as a Sun-Moon observatory (Hawkins, 1963). Since then several stonemonuments have been explained in a similar way."

Welcome To The Maine Archaeological Society Six chapters explore the archaeology and history of Norse greenland. The backgroundof Iron Age Norse life in homeland areas of scandinavia is presented in http://www.mainearchsociety.org/booknotes5.htm
Extractions: by Arthur Spiess This Booknote is on Vikings : The North Atlantic Saga , which was edited by William Fitzhugh and Elizabeth Ward. the book was published by Smithsonian Institution Press, 2000, $34.95 paperback, 750 Ninth St. NW, Washington, DC 20560-0950, or 202-275-2300, or www.sipress.si.edu. Six chapters explore the archaeology and history of Norse Greenland. The background of Iron Age Norse life in homeland areas of Scandinavia is presented in enough detail so that the reader feels completely educated in the causes of Norse migration, and the social and economic patterns involved. Norse colonization of parts of Scotland, England and Ireland are discussed.There is plenty of information on Norse ships of various sizes and designs, Viking artifacts, old Norse religion and conversion to Christianity, and even the involvement of the non-Scandinavian Finns in Norse trade and economic patterns that extended into what is now Russia. The Norse coin from the Goddard site in Blue Hill is mentioned and figured. Even if you are not an archaeologist by training, this book will be fascinating and a reference text for decades to come. The book closes with chapters on Norse hoaxes in North America,of which there are an incredible number; the fascination of Norse mythology today, including poking fun at the Minnesota Vikings football team with their winged helmets; and a chapter on tourism and sites that one can visit in Newfiundland, Greenland and England in particular, where you can gain a first-hand experience of Norse and Viking archaeology.

Extractions: Update: 22nd July. Added a few new site to the sites page . They're not on the map yet,though. I'll be presenting a paper on "Charcoal burial: an early medieval burial rite" at the annual conference of the European Association of Archaeologists in Cork this September. The exact date isn't set yet, but I'll update when it is. The paper attempts to put the research I've been doing on British charcoal burials into a European context, and is my first serious attempt to assess the relationship between the British examples and the charcoal burials in France, Scandinavia, Greenland and Iceland within the context of the social and cultural implications of the rite. This paper is part of a session on "Deviant burial practices in the archaeological record." I'm James Holloway, a 26-year-old PhD student in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. I started out studying History as an undergraduate, worked for a few years in the United States, and then moved to archaeology through an MA course at the University of Durham . Now I'm back at Cambridge working on my PhD; my supervisor is
Extractions: (Tourism, Culture and Recreation) Viking Millennium International Symposium set to begin The Viking Millennium International Symposium, an affiliated event of the Vikings! 1000 Years program, is set to begin this evening in St. Johns. Scholars and Viking experts from around the world will gather from September 15 - 24 in three locations across the province including St. Johns, LAnse aux Meadows and the Labrador Straits to discuss many aspects of Norse culture during the period of exploration that spurred the new world journeys of Leif Ericson. "For the first time ever, 300 participants including 70 speakers from all over the world will gather where Leif Ericson landed 1,000 years ago and became the first European to meet our indigenous peoples. This symposium is especially valuable because the papers the speakers will present and the discussions that will follow will provide us with a better understanding of the Viking Age," said Charles Furey, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Recreation. The panel of well-known Viking scholars includes: Magnus Magnusson, Benedicte Ingstad, Birgitta Wallace, Peter Sawyer, William Fitzhugh, Patrick Wallace, and Richard Hall. The symposium is divided into three major themes including

Extractions: Serena Sabatini At a general theoretical level, the project aims to contribute to the study of European late Bronze Age communities and the influence that specific cross-cultural interactions may have produced on their cultural identity formation processes. The purpose is pursued through the analysis of the late Bronze Age Nordic House urns case study. In particular the project is engaged with the investigation of those cinerarias local and regional characters and of their possible relation to phenomena of exchange with or incorporation of foreign costumes. The Nordic house urns are distributed in fact on a large area from the island of Gotland to southern Sweden, Denmark, eastern Germany and northern Poland. At the same time the consistent presence of a similar and contemporary burial practice in the central-western regions of the Italian peninsula, makes the intercultural question eventually more complex and to be analysed not only according to a Nordic perspective, but partly, at least, within a larger European scale.

Extractions: Wave over wave of Vikings cut through the North Sea and the Atlantic. In the east they portaged across Poland, penetrating Russia as far as the Caspian and Black Seas to the Mediterranean. Greed for glory and plunder, lust for freedom and land lured them to England, Sicily, Greenland, Ireland, and as far as Newfoundland in the New World. They colonized England, Greenland, Russia, and Iceland. Between the eighth and eleventh centuries, bands of scandinavians whom we have come to call Vikings played a significant part in reshaping the medieval world from Russia and Byzantium in the east to the Atlantic Islands and Newfoundland in the west as well as on the European continent.

Extractions: Mayo's rich archaeological landscape and its attendant cultures are evidenced in the many megalithic tombs and finds of bronze and gold artifacts some dated from about 3500 years ago. Stone circles, stone alignments and standing stones indicate ritual cultures which are comparable to those in Ulster, Scotland, Wales, England, France and Iberia. The formal coming of Christianity to Ireland some 1570 years ago marked further connections with Britain and the continent and in Mayo the parallel development of Patrician and Columban Church. The Columban tradition in Mayo was marked by strong connections with Ulster, Scotland and Northumbria. Farming settlements in the form of groupings of ringforts developed around the monastic sites. With the coming of the Normans some 830 years ago there were further changes in the landscape with the establishment of estates and the medieval towns. The introduction and maintenance of large estates and landlords subsequently deeply affected rural life in the West of Ireland. This caused a dependency culture in land ownership and land use to exist that was to underlie the outcome of the Great Famine of 150 years ago. Mayo, along with other western counties, suffered great deprivations, which forced, for the more fortunate survivors, connections through emigration, to be made with North America and Australia.

The discovery of more artifacts near Clovis, New Mexico in the 1930s led to the name for these people - the Clovis culture Linguistics suggests that there were three waves of contact from Siberia , the most recent being that of the ancestors of the Inuit . Recent evidence from molecular genetics suggests that the entire Amerind population of the Americas may be derived from an effective founding population that was as small as 80 (Hey, 2005).
