It might be the most quoted unpublished work in Danish archaeology: "Atlantiske bopladsfund fra Nordøstsjælland og Skåne – Dateringsproblemer" by Peter Vang Petersen, curator at The National Museum of Denmark.
In 1979, Peter Vang Petersen submitted the work to the University of Copenhagen in connection with his dissertation. Since then, it has often been used by students as well as graduate archaeologists. The thesis was never published, and thus not the background and method of all his groundbreaking results - Before now! If you want to grasp the deeper meaning of the artefact material used in his typology, then this is the work you must resort to.
This dissertation deals with the available records and finds from 21 settlement finds from Northeast Zealand and Scania, and the dating problems associated with this archaeologically complicated find.
For the classification of the material, a typology has been developed that places particular emphasis on technical aspects of the manufacturing process. A number of well-known function types are thus divided into new techno types or morphotype types. These turn out to occur within a narrow time frame. Thus, arrowheads of flint from Atlantic settlements are just as chronologically significant as e.g. the microliths. Arrowheads must also in Atlantic times be considered the best ground for an archaeological dating of settlement finds.
