The distribution map of Kiukainen culture (right) where individual sites are marked with red dots. The heatmap of the Kiukainen culture (left). The heatmap was constructed by evaluating site density and also the number of pottery finds. The three areas chosen for closer review, Kemiönsaari, Harjavalta, and Kristiinankaupunki, are located about 100 km apart from each other (Figure 4). Kemiönsaari, in the Southwest Finland region, is the southernmost of the sites, and it is also currently part of the archipelago. The Harjavalta area is in the middle of the Satakunta region, formerly part of the Western Finland Province. The northernmost review area is Kristiinankaupunki, in the Ostrobothnia region.

It is best known for its pottery, and most of the finds are from the coastal area of the Baltic Sea between Helsinki and Ostrobothnia. Previous research on the culture was done several decades ago, so this study aims to de...
