• Birds in medieval Norway 

      Walker, Samuel James; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Meijer, Hanneke (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Whilst modern avian distributions in Scandinavia are well studied, how past events and processes have shaped modern bird communities in the region remains poorly known. This is mainly due to the fact that work on post-glacial ...

      The great auk was once abundant and distributed across the North Atlantic. It is now extinct, having been heavily exploited for its eggs, meat, and feathers. We investigated the impact of human hunting on its demise by ...

      Moe, Dagfinn; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Indrelid, Svein; Salvesen, Per Harald (Chapter; Peer reviewed, 2006-06)
    • Paleomagnetic correlations between scandinavian ice-sheet fluctuations and greenland dansgaard–oeschger events, 45,000–25,000 yr B.P. 

      Mangerud, Jan; Løvlie, Reidar; Gulliksen, Steinar; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Larsen, Eiliv; Valen, Vidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2003)
      Two paleomagnetic excursions, the Skjong correlated with the Laschamp (about 41,000 GISP2 yr B.P.) and the Valderhaug correlated with the Mono Lake (about 34,000 GISP2 yr B.P.), have been identified in stratigraphic ...
    • A preboreal elk (Alces alces L., 1758) antler from south-eastern Norway 

      Grøndahl, Finn Audun; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Dahl, Svein Olaf; Rosvold, Jørgen (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2010)
      In 1895 a shed elk antler was found in a mire on a farm near Fluberg, in Søndre Land municipality in south-eastern Norway. The antler was first radiocarbon dated in 2008 and yielded the age 9,100 ± 50 BP (8,340 – 8,250 ...
    • Radiocarbon dates of two musk ox vertebrae reveal ice-free conditions during late Marine Isotope Stage 3 in central South Norway 

      Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Nesje, Atle; Higham, Thomas F.G. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      One of the most reliable proofs of terrestrial ice-free conditions within Stadials is the presence of terrestrial vertebrate fauna that require access to vegetation in the winter, for example sedentary birds such as ...
    • Reconstructing the history of a fragmented and heavily exploited red deer population using ancient and contemporary DNA 

      Rosvold, Jørgen; Røed, Knut H.; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Andersen, Reidar; Stenøien, Hans K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-09-26)
      Background: Red deer (Cervus elaphus) have been an important human resource for millennia, experiencing intensive human influence through habitat alterations, hunting and translocation of animals. In this study we investigate ...
    • Stable Isotope Evidence for Late Medieval (14th–15th C) Origins of the Eastern Baltic Cod (Gadus morhua) Fishery 

      Orton, David C.; Makowiecki, Daniel; Roo, Tessa de; Johnstone, Cluny; Harland, Jennifer; Jonsson, Leif; Heinrich, Dirk; Enghoff, Inge Bødker; Lõugas, Lembi; Neer, Wim Van; Ervynck, Anton; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Amundsen, Colin; Jones, Andrew K.

      Although recent historical ecology studies have extended quantitative knowledge of eastern Baltic cod (Gadus morhua) exploitation back as far as the 16th century, the historical origin of the modern fishery remains obscure. ...
    • Temporal and structural genetic variation in reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) associated with the pastoral transition in Northwestern Siberia 

      Røed, Knut; Kvie, Kjersti; Losey, Robert J.; Kosintsev, Pavel A; Hufthammer, Anne Karin; Dwyer, Mark J.; Goncharov, Vasiliy; Klokov, Konstantin B; Arzyutov, Dmitry V.; Plekhanov, Andrei; Anderson, David G. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Just as the domestication of livestock is often cited as a key element in the Neolithic transition to settled, the emergence of large‐scaled reindeer husbandry was a fundamental social transformation for the indigenous ...
