2018 (English)In: Skeletal Variation and Adaptation in Europeans: Upper Paleolithic to the Twentieth Century / [ed] Christopher B. Ruff., Hoboken, NJ: Wiley-Blackwell, 2018, p. 355-396Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter focuses on Scandinavia, Finland, and adjacent regions of Northwest Russia (Karelia and the Kola Peninsula). Urbanization commenced relatively late in Scandinavia and Finland. The chapter examines temporal trends in body size and shape within Scandinavia and Finland across all time periods, followed by comparisons with other Europeans as well as other comparisons dealing with the Neolithic period Pitted Ware culture (PWC foragers), urban‐rural differences, and sexual dimorphism. The Neolithic PWC foragers are more similar to the Mesolithic foragers than to the Neolithic farmers in relative long bone bending strength. The PWC are a special case because, although foragers, they lived during the Scandinavian Middle Neolithic and were contemporary with Neolithic farmers. The chapter presents comparisons between Scandinavians and other Europeans in size‐standardized cross‐sectional properties for femoral A‐P and M‐L bending strengths, and torsional/average bending strengths of right and left humeri.
