From the survival of a relativly small group - we can see that artical man is appearing in Sweden and Norway already 9.900 year ago. Just a few generations and some 500 years later we find permanent populations ALL OVER the Fenno-Scandian area.

At this time the land was completly bare - only mountains, rocks, sand and clay to be seen. And beaches, fjords and bays - with rivers, lakes and sweetwater; "as long as the eye could see..."

This primary arctical population evidently lived by fishing, - and they where already building sophisticated dog-sledges, river-boats, ocean-boats, fishing-nets and other nesseceties - traveling the coastlines and oceans.

Today Scandinavian archaeology bear witness to artical man appearing 9.900 years ago, whereafter he spread with an incredible speed - all over the northern hemisphere. This first generation of norsemen must already have been "extremly well fit, highly organised and incredibly well prepared to live, flourish and swiftly expanding on a naked landscape, under a rather extreme arctic winter. Further they must have been higly skilled and very well organised to perform this imediate and swift expension.

Soon they stretched all the way to Ireland, Orkney and Feroe Island (at latest 6.000 years BP). They probably also reached Greenland and America already that time.
A similar development can be seen towards the east, especially in the period called the "Climatical Optimum" 8000-3000 years ago, when the middle temperature where 2,5-2.8 Celsius-degrees warmer than today.

Thus, the recently discovered Kennewick Man, probably a Caucasian about 9.200 years old, could have reached the Colorado-river both from the North-Atlantic and the northern rivers of Cananda - as from Asia and the Bering-streigth.

Two ars ago the Univ. of Huddersfield, doing exstensive research on the European Genome, could publish the conslusion that the present European populations are - all - a mix of two separate imigrations; one very old, one quite new. Except from the Scandinavians, whose genome still is the same as it was 10.000 years ago, - and before. Consequently there was no agraric population over-running the former hunterer-gatherers, as the main theory have said for centuries. "It sems that the Scandinavians have adopted the agriculture, at an early stage, not permitting any farming imigrants", says genetican John Richards.

That being said - doesn`t Richards discovery imply that we may have to look again on our preconceptions of the origin of agriculture?

During the last 30 years we have found that the Norwegian West Coast have hosted a Boat-building fishing-population that is just about 10.000 years old.

Over the past 25 years the span and magnitude of this culture have become very well documented. There are already a number of small exhibitions and "experiential activities" for tourists - along the coast of western/northern Norway.

This summer the present norsemen complete a "national centre" - "NORVEG" - making the first large-scale presentation of Norways 10.000 year old coast-culture. The center is in Rorvik, 200 km north-west of Trondheim. Along with local historians like myself - this is becomming a centre of research and resume for our professional historians, as well as a highly regarded tourist-attraction.
