Within South Scandinavia, the Limfjord region of North Jutland in the 3rd millennium BC was geographically a markedly archipelagic landscape fairly open to the North Sea, with numerous islands and the presence of long streams connecting to the hinterlands. Culturally, during the younger Single Grave Culture as well as during the early Late Neolithic, this region certainly welcomed novel impulses from near and far. Not least, longhouses with a sunken floor in their eastern half were used for habitation in areas of the central Limfjord region. From the early Late Neolithic, some new investigations of sites of such longhouses at the Beaker settlements may also feed into the discussion of livelihood specialization and settlement continuity.
