HUNTER-GATHERERS ON THE LOWLAND: SOME REMARKS ON THE HAMBURGIAN RE-COLONISATION OF NORTHERN EUROPE

Jakub Mugaj

Abstract


The process of the recolonisation of northern Europe after deglaciation is related to groups of hunter-gatherer societies called Hamburgian culture. The process itself, the range of Hamburgian settlement, and the organisation of settlement, as well as mobility strategies, are key issues in Early Late Glacial studies. In this paper, the implications of the wide dispersion of Hamburgian settlements on a hypothetical scenario for colonisation due to territorial organisation will be presented.

Key words: Hamburgian culture, re-colonisation, mobility, lithic technology.
