Details

Barmose I is an early Maglemosian (7500 - 6000 BCE) site located in Barmosen in South Zealand, Denmark. The site was excavated in 1967-1971 by Axel Johansson (Johansson 1971 and 1990). Flake counts and grid coordinates were taken from Figure 100 in Blankholm (1991) for BarmoseI.grid. BarmoseI.pp includes the locations of 473 artifacts from Appendix C of Blankholm's book.
