  1. 1. Hounds of Hel: an osteological investigation of dog skeletons in Vendel Period–Viking Age inhumations at Valsgärde cemetery, Sweden.

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för arkeologi och antik historia

    Författare :Christopher Nichols; [2018]
    Nyckelord :dog; zooarchaeology; osteology; funerary archaeology; boat burial; Scandinavia; Vendel Period; Viking Age;

    Sammanfattning : The cemetery of Valsgärde, Sweden contains 92 human graves dating from the 3rdc. BCE to the 11thc. CE, the majority and most elaborate of which date to the Vendel and Viking Ages (approximately 500-1100 CE). This total consists of 15 unburnt boat graves, 15 inhumation and chamber graves, and 62 cremations. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Quaternary Arctic foraminiferal isotopes: species reliability and palaeoceanographic application

    Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för geologiska vetenskaper

    Författare :Aron Varhelyi; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Palaeoceanography; Arctic; foraminifera; stable isotopes; Paleoceanografi; Arktis; foraminiferer; stabila isotoper;

    Sammanfattning : To investigate whether foraminiferal stable isotope (δ18O/δ13C) variations have potential as a chronostratigraphic tool in the Arctic Ocean, this thesis presents new δ18O/δ13C data from five marine sediment cores. Three of those are downcore analyses (PS92/54-1; TC/PC-03; PC-07) and the remaining two are core top analyses (PC-04; PC-08). LÄS MER

  3. 3. "Forntidens vildar" : Perspektiv på relationen mellan djur och människor i grottan Stora Förvar

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Arkeologi

    Författare :Tobias Lindström; [2017]
    Nyckelord :Stora Förvar; Gotland; Mesolithic; defleshing; disarticulation; relational ontology; posthumanism; human-animal relations; Stora Förvar; Gotland; mesolitikum; skelettering; disartikulering; relationell ontologi; posthumanism;

    Sammanfattning : The cave Stora Förvar, excavated in the end of the 19th century, yielded a vast archaeological assemblage, providing great insight into the stone-age occupation of Stora Karlsö, an island a few kilometers off the west coast of Gotland. The bones of around ten humans dating to the Mesolithic have previously been identified among the four tons of faunal remains recovered from the cave. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Acid Sulfate Soils and Metal Accumulation in Sediments in Rosån Catchment, Northern Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Carola Lindström; [2017]
    Nyckelord :Acid sulfate soils; increased metal concentrations; anthropogenic activity; Sura sulfatjordar; ökade metallkoncentrationer; mänsklig påverkan;

    Sammanfattning : Global environmental concerns arise when marine deposits with fine-grained iron sulfide-rich sediments (FeS and FeS2), now situated above sea level, oxidize from anthropogenic lowering of the groundwater table. The oxidation of iron sulfides decreases the soil pH and the acidic environment of these Acid Sulfate Soils (AS) soils increase weathering and mobilization of metals into adjacent watercourses, lakes and estuaries.

  5. 5. Using Bulk XRF-Analysis of Chinese Loess to Determine High-Resolution Records of Dust Provenance

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Alexandra Engström Johansson; [2017]
    Nyckelord :dust; provenance; elemental ratios; Chinese Loess Plateau;

    Sammanfattning : Understanding the sources of the dust that forms the extensive loess deposits on the Chinese Loess Plateau is crucial for reconstructing atmospheric circulation patterns and dust pathways. Dust sources are however highly debated, mainly due to the low resolution of many records and the often ambiguous nature of geochemical proxies. LÄS MER
