FMK #3: I heard there was some real kinky stuff in these, y'all*

Okay! Now that I have gone through all the paperbacks and have a better idea of what I actually have, this should be a fun one. :D

Results from last week's FMK.

How FMK works: I am trying to clear out my unread books piles. So there is a poll, in which you get to pick F, M, or K. F means I should spend a night of wild passion with the book ASAP, and then decide. M means I should continue to commit to a long-term relationship of sharing my bedroom with it. K means it should go away, immediately and with prejudice. Anyone can vote, you don't have to actually know anything about the books.

I am going to start officially closing the poll and picking winners on Friday nights because I don't always have time on Sunday to read a whole novel. (although not actually closing it probably, people can still vote.)

Link to long version of explanation (on previous poll)

I am pretty sure fic was primarily inspired by auel, so perhaps by the recursive property of transformative works? There was survival alone followed by meeting other homo sapiens and cave art and I think they had a baby? They might have come back to the 90s at the end for the sole purpose of annoying Skinner.

For the Norse stuff, as far as finding vinland plants in Iceland, we would know it if we saw it in the botanicals, and no one has seen it yet. Afaik no one is specifically looking, but one of the most likely spots is glaumbaer, and nothing popped up there. I am less sure about non Iceland stuff but I can't recall hearing anything specifically. If not, it's probably because developing a research plan specifically to look for those connections would be difficult and probably hard to get funded. Taking bot samples from near places where the population of interest lived is now pretty standard (along with animal bones of course), and isotopic work on skeletal samples is also becoming more common (can suggest, among other things, where ppl grew up). So to go beyond what is already being done you would need an idea of specifically WHERE to look, other than the sites that at already being worked on, that you suspect has a very good chance of providing such evidence, if it exists.

Of course that's all trying to approach the question archaeologically. It's possible a geneticist could find a suspicious plant species and do some regression similar to what has been done for early human migration? I'll try to remember later to send you a link to some stuff about arctic plants (unless I already added you to that folder?) I can't recall specifically hearing of any one doing quite what you ask, but I wouldn't necessarily knew, especially if it's like, a Danish PhD ecology student.
