Étude des interactions entre les fermiers norrois et leur environnement au Groenland : le cas de l'établissement occidental

Abstract : As the focus of several research programs since the pioneering work of Iversen (1954) and Fredskild (1973), Greenland demonstrates its sensitivity to past environmental variations and in human-climate relationships. At the end of the 10th century Norse took advantage of a global warming climate to settle in Greenland, until the middle 15th century (Seaver, 2010). The Eastern settlement (60°N) was the larger settlement and probably the best studied by archaeologists and palaeoenvironmentalists (Massa, 2012). At higher latitude (64°N), the Western Settlement, in the actual Nuuk’s fjord is a smaller settlement. Human activites were constrained by a harsher climate, forcing an adaptation towards hunting and fishing (Arneborg et al., 2012 ; Schofield et al., 2019). A high-resolution multi-proxy analysis of a lacustrine sequence performed in the Lake Itinera (Kapisillit area) in the Western Settlement, provides a first glimpse of climate change and human-environment interactions that were previously misunderstood (Barlow et al., 1997; Picard 2019).
