dc.description.abstract This paper concerns the material culture of Finnish Mesolithic and Neolithic hunter-gatherer mortuary practices. Although the perishable materials - including the human remains - are poorly preserved, the graves nevertheless contain large numbers of objects made of unperishable materials. In this paper, this largely unpublished material is complied for the first time into a single study. As a grand narrative, the find material is viewed in the light of change and continuity in the material culture of death among ancient hunter-gatherers. The general trends in how certain materials or artefact types were used in mortuary practices are also explored. In conclusion, it seems that although most of the finds derive from the graves of the Neolithic Typical Comb Ware Culture (c. 3900-3500 cal BC), the artefacts are not merely imported exotic raw material, but are also packed with symbolic overtones. © 2018 Association pour le traitement automatique des langues.
