Nämforsen in Näsåker is a site of one of the largest collections of rock-carvings in northern Europe. About 2300 different figures and lines have been chipped out on the rocky islands of Notön, Brådön, Laxön and their adjacent shores close to the rapids.
Section from the Bronze Age rock carvings in Tanum, Sweden. The rock carvings in Tanum, in the north of Bohuslän, are a unique artistic achievement not only for their rich and varied motifs (depictions of humans and animals, weapons, boats and other subjects) but also for their cultural and chronological unity. They reveal the life and beliefs of people in Europe during the Bronze Age and are remarkable for their large numbers and outstanding quality. Photo courtesy taken by Bjoertvedt
