About the book
The Thule Culture - the ancestors of the present day Inuit - never ceases to fascinate and spur archaeological and ethno-historical research.
As a tribute to the most distinguished specialist in the Thule Culture of the Eastern Arctic, research professor Hans Christian Gulløv at "SILA - The Greenland Research Centre at the National Museum of Denmark", a number of experts on Arctic archaeology and ethno-history have contributed with peer-reviewed papers to these proceedings. Two guest papers by emeritus professor Lewis R. Binford are included.
The papers address:
-origins and spread of the Thule Culture from Alaska across Canada to Greenland
-prehistoric and historic resource utilization and hunting methods
-landscapes, dwellings and hunting territories of the Thule Culture
-cultural meetings and transitions from prehistory to history
-the Thule Culture in its global context
