Inhalt

The Early Holocene in the Eastern Baltic, as in the rest of Northern Europe, was marked by pronounced
changes in the environment and human ways of life. The centres of settlement shifted from the major river
valleys to inland lakes and river systems. One such example is the Zvejnieki II habitation site on the shore
of Lake Burtnieks in northern Latvia, which has yielded a rich assemblage of bone and antler artefacts. The
article examines the stratigraphy and possible chronology of the settlement layers, but focuses primarily on
a typological analysis of the bone and antler artefacts, also presenting insights into the origins of the Early
Mesolithic ‘culture’ in the Eastern Baltic.
