Scandinavian Rock Art

Friday evening I went to a lecture with slide projection about Scandinavian rock art by Ellen Meijer (and Jurri Jurriaanse) of The Tanum Museum of Rock Carvings (Tanums Hällristningsmuseum Underslös). The prehistoric images were beaten into the rocks by people from the Nordic Bronze Age and early Iron Age (ca 2000 BC - 300 AD). Ellen showed us pictures and told us lots about the images and how they are interpreted. It can be hard to determine what they represent and especially about the animals not everyone agrees. Some of the images are filled in with red so the tourists can see them, but there are a lot more that are documented by volunteers.

It was a very interesting lecture, told by wonderful people with passion for all the work they do. I won't even try to reproduce the info here; that wouldn't do them justice anyway. I bought the booklets by Ellen & Jurri, so I can explore this subject a bit more. I would love to visit the Tanum World Heritage site and museums!
