This Ph.D. thesis deals with the hunting of wild boar during the Mesolithic in South Scandinavia and the relationship between humans and wild game. The study is based on an analysis of osteological remains from sites in Scania, Sweden, dating from the Late Maglemose Culture to the Early Ertebolle Culture. Tooth development and tooth wear in recent populations from Poland, Germany and Sweden have been studied in order to evaluate and improve the methodology for ageing remains of wild boar.
