As the Norwegian Military Defense plans to expand their shooting ranges and target practices in the area of Mauken in Northern Norway, searchers from the Sami Department for Environment and Cultural Heritage reveals vast remains of Sami reindeer herding connected to the seasonal migration between Norway and Sweden. The film gives a view of how surveys for cultural remains and archaeological excavations, supported by oral narratives, construct knowledge about the past in an area.
