A description in (a few) words and (many) pictures


Monday, May 28, 2007: We are visiting Tinneborgs Slott, the well-preserved labyrinth at Ulmekärr. Then we have much time to see the rock carvings in Tanum, dating back to the Bronze Age, one of the 14 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sweden. The carvings tell a lot about the Norse mythology. We are walking from the Vitlycke Museum to the prehistoric stone monuments on a hill and to the rock carvings at Vitlycke and Aspeberget. In the evening we visit the Scottish graves in the Greby gravfält.
