Reworked molluscs, foraminifera, and palynomorphs occur in a basal ti U at K valsundet near Tromsø. The fossils, e.g. Arctica islandica, Cardium ciliatum, indicate a contemporaneous low"arctic environment as opposed to the present high"boreal environment. The fossils were 14C-dated to 40,600 + 2100/- 1700 BP. Environmental implications and correlation with other finds are briefly discussed.
