As it is meaning, it is a Scandinavian culture from Mesolithic. It existed around 11th millennium BC It means that this culture was older than Fosna-Hensbacka. The place of it was Northern Norway. Komsa culture was a fishing culture which was organized on the coast of Northern Norway. It was linked widely with Fosna culture.

Peter Woodman formed a periodical system of this culture (1992) and Bimmer Olsen modified this system into the periods of existence of Komsa culture.

Olsen’s periodization,

  • Phase 1, 10000 BP – 9000 BP,
  • Phase II, 9000 – 7500\700 BP,
  • Phase III, 7000 – 5600 BP.

Every stage characterized by some traits of that stage like big and small flake axes, arrow points and so on. This sequence of stages show that people made a shift from raw materials to domination of quartz. It shows technological progress in work with materials.
