Item description for Smakkerup Huse: A Late Mesolithic Coastal Site In Northwest Zealand, Denmark by T. Douglas Price...

The archaeological site of Smakkerup Huse is located at the headwaters of a former fjord known as the Saltbk Vig on the northwest coast of the island of Zealand, Denmark. Excavations took place in 1989 and again from 1995 to 1997 by a team of Danish and American archaeologists. The site is important for a number of reasons, including the 1000-year record of cultural deposits and the preservation of abundant subsistence remains and wooden objects. Smakkerup Huse documents some of the oldest domestic cattle in Denmark and a new artifact type, a painted pebble, from the Mesolithic. While the settlement area of the site on land had been eroded, the waterlain deposits adjacent to the site preserved a submerged midden and an in situ fishing and boat landing area. The report on the site includes background on the Mesolithic of Southern Scandinavia, a history of research at the site, the geology and topography of the site and its environment, the layout and sequence of the excavations, stratigraphy, the finds, dating, interpretation and significance. Among several issues that the study raises are the nature of life in the Mesolithic period and the meaning and causes of the transition from hunting and gathering to farming in human prehistory.
