Human presence in North Scandinavia since 10-11,000 years ago.

Radio Sweden International and The Local via Archaeology in Europe.

Two settlements dated to c. 10-11,000 BP (very late UP or early Epipaleolithic in pan-European chronology) have been found in the northernmost reaches of Sweden, in the Tornedale region that borders Finland (and used to be of Finnish culture and language).

This new evidence adds up to similar dates for another distant Northern European colonization: that of Scotland, probably one or two milennia earlier.
