Abstract

In the ethnographic literature on the indigenous peoples of the North, the dwelling has always occupied a prominent position. About the Hearth is a continuation of this longstanding academic interest. The theme of the three Hs—home, hearth, and household—frames a project bringing together scholars from different disciplines: mostly anthropology but also archaeology, museum studies, and historical demography.
