The large dataset made available by the Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo, is used to present broad patterns in the geographic distribution of all Stone Age finds from the museum. A set of metadata is introduced to describe the precision and accuracy of the geographic information. To incorporate most of the finds, the first presentation is done at the level of municipality. In a second analysis, only finds with more precise location are used, and Mesolithic/Early Neolithic and Late Neolithic sites are separated. This shows that a change in the distribution pattern from these large museum databases can be good starting points for analyses, a place to get new ideas and to see whether a hypothesis might be worth pursuing.
