Short summary
When modelling land uplift processes, there is a need for historical data in which dating, elevation and consequently spatial data are connected to the shore level at that time. In addition, human settlements were located above the seawater level in Fennoscandia. This information can be used to validate and update the post-glacial land uplift model. In this paper, a collection of data consisting of geological and archaeological data sets is presented.
