    Blankholm, Hans Peter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-02)
    The Storegga tsunami (8175-8120 cal. BP, Bondevik et al., 2012) has often been described as a catastrophe spelling major disaster and demographic decline for the people in the danger zone. More nuance is needed if we are to understand the effects. Most studies have had a supra-regional or regional character; less effort seems to have put into studies at the sub-regional level.

  • Armaments and ornaments: mate-guarding and the evolutionary roots of religion 

    Czachesz, Istvan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-09-13)
    This article explores the connection between sexual selection and religion, locating the origins of religious behavior in mate guarding after the transition to terrestrial life in <i>Homo erectus</i> 1.8 million years ago. An important consequence of the transition was the emergence of a polygynous, multiple-family social structure, which gave rise to mate guarding as a successful strategy. Further, ...

    Hansen, Henning (Lecture; Forelesning, 2018-03-16)
    This paper explores the historiography of History of Reading in a Nordic context. The populations of the Nordic countries were probably the first in the world to ascend to mass literacy, and widespread basic reading ability was achieved by the early 1700s. The Nordic countries have always been dependent on the import of literature, both in translation and in the original language. In that sense, the ...
  • The Role of Conspiracy Mentality and Paranormal Beliefs in Predicting Conspiracy Beliefs Among Neopagans 

    Dyrendal, Asbjørn; Kennair, Leif Edward Ottesen; Lewis, James R (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-27)
    Recent studies on conspiracy thinking has concluded that the strongest predictor of the tendency towards conspiratorial thinking is a one-dimensional construct-conspiracy mentality-that is relatively stable over time and valid across cultures. Lantian et al. (2016) found that a single, elaborate question can work as a measure of conspiracy beliefs. We assess the validity of this question for an ...

  • En analyse av båtgraver fra jernalder i Nord-Norge 

    Lund, Thomas (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-05-14)
    Formålet med avhandlingen har vært å gjennomføre en analyse dokumenterte båtgraver fra jernalderen i Nord-Norge fra Tromsø Museums forvaltningsområde. I nordnorsk sammenheng har båtgraver som gravskikk fått lite oppmerksomhet i arkeologien sammenlignet med andre landsdeler. Undersøkelser av båtgraver har i stor grad vært begrenset til individuelle funn, noe som betyr at nordnorske båtgraver ikke har ...
  • Theory Adrift: The Matter of Archaeological Theorizing 

    Pétursdóttir, Þóra; Olsen, Bjørnar Julius (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-10)
    At a possible transition towards a ‘flat’, post-human or new-materialist environment, many have suggested that archaeological theory and theorizing is changing course; turning to metaphysics; leaning towards the sciences; or, even is declared dead. Resonating with these concerns, and drawing on our fieldwork on a northern driftwood beach, this article suggests the need to rethink fundamental notions ...
