It has been silent on this blog for the last part of the year but not because nothing is going on, rather the opposite. An official report from this year’s field work is on its way and I will publish more results when it is ready.
Next year is off to an exciting start, with a visit to Tromsø in January where I will be searching through the private archives of the late Ørnulv Vorren. Vorren has done most of the previous research on Sámi circular offering sites, but not everything was published. Hence, his field notes, drawings, maps, etc. should be very interesting indeed.
In addition, the “Christmas present” for the project this year came from Berit Wallenbergs Stiftelse, granting SEK 82.000 for further investigations. Many thanks to the foundation for this generous contribution! It makes for an exciting field season in 2013, so I really look forward to next year.
On this note I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
