    Well, both sources have in common the word "Finn" about the seasaami people during these 5-600 years.

    By the way, in Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza in "The History and Geography of Human Genes" 1994 the Saami in northern Scandinavia have a very distinct autosomal genetical profile from all other neightbouring populations or any other populations for that matter.
    Othere didn't mention the Lapps. Maybe he didn't meet them? Maybe he only traveled by sea and only met the seasaami? Maybe some of the seasaami also had reindeers in those times?

      The term "Lapp" is a newer and seem to have appeared later. However "Finn" is ancient and even appear in Roman history books as well as Norse sagas.

      The seasaamis was (in addition to their ocean harvesting) raindeer hunters, not hurders, however they did have very small hurds of domesticated wild animals for food, milk and transport, this changed as the mountain saami exterminated all the wild raindeers and moved their huge domesticated hurds into the hunting land of the seasaami.

      Ottar himself had according to him selv 600 hundred raindeers taken care of by saami people, probably captured by them too by using "bait raindeer".
