Blurb:

By the beginning of the Late Neolithic and continuing into the Early Bronze Age, the reliance and utilisation of the sea set the stage for a more advanced sociopolitical organisation along the coast of northwestern Scandinavia. How was this operationalized? In this introduction chapter the author outlines his primary focus, which centres on the reasons behind the development and variation of sociopolitical organisation along the coast of northwestern Scandinavia in the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age.
