Rock Carvings in Tanum, Sweden (ca. 1800 - 500 B.C.)
In northern Bohuslän there are roughly 1,500 known rock carvings, and new ones are constantly being discovered. A large and unusually varied collection of them can be found in Tanum. Here archaeologists have found thirteen types of figures and motifs, such as cup marks, ships, sleighs, animals, humans, hands, feet, trees, and weapons. The pictures describe the social life of Bronze Age people, their spiritual experiences, beliefs, and rites.
