While the continental ice sheet and great bodies of water still covered most of Finland, a tundra, overgrown with dwarf birch, bordered the glacial margin, both in the north and in the south.
There, wild reindeer, Arctic fur-bearing animals, and--in the coastal waters -- fish, offered primitive hunters and fishermen a chance to eke out a livelihood. The world's oldest fishing net is carbon dated at 10 000 years old.
About twelve thousand years ago, Finland (the area inhabited by Finns, Karelians and Lapps, between Norway and Lake Onega) was almost totally buried under a continental ice sheet, just as Greenland is today.
Gradually, the ice sheet melted, (early global warming) and its southern margin retreated farther and farther north.

Nettle has been used for thousands of years, and for many applications including medicine.These two separate ridges, known as the Salpausselkä ranges, run east and west across the entire breadth of Finland.During the final stages of the Ice Age, the body of water that eventually evolved into the Baltic Sea was a lake.The established view was that these earliest known inhabitants of Finland had arrived mostly by land from eastern Europe.
They came in from central Europe as well when Europeans became sailors and they also easily followed the coastline to Finland.
This sounds like the Finns arrived much like the Slavs did, to claim the north for themselves, which is not accurate.
