Humans have always had an influence on the areas they have inhabited, but the degree of influence has varied through history.
Hunting facilities for wild reindeer are the most numerous and comprehensive traces of human activity on the Varanger peninsula from prehistoric times. In addition the cutting and collecting of fire wood, settlements, religious activity and the grazing of domesticated animals left their marks in the terrain.
In more recent times house building, farming, soil extraction and road building are examples of human activity that influence the surroundings.
Both older and newer time´s human activities have left a mark in the landscape at Ceavccageađge/Mortensnes.
