The aim is to study cultural adaption in a coastal and archipelago environment in southwestern Finland.Probate inventories from a time period from 1700 to 1900 provide the basis for the investigation which concentrates on studying objects connected to the utilisation of natural resources in agrculture, fishing and hunting, thus indicating geographical diversity and changes in time.To enlight a more quantitative approach in research, the inventories have been stored in a database now consisting of some 300 records containing over 80.000 artefacts.
