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


Tuesday, May 29, 2007: First we are driving to Stenehed, which may be called a small Swedish Stonehenge. Then we visit the Stencenter at Svarteborg with a new labyrinth, built in 2002 by Siv Boström. After that we are exploring the rock carvings from Åbyhällen at Sotenäs, immediately beside the Nordens Ark. We are looking for two prehistoric stone graves on the cemetery of Hunnebostrand. We drive back over Greby and Ulmekärr to Tanum. In the evening we make a visit of the rock carvings at Fossum.

"Rock carvings are an elementary thought of mankind", says Adolf Bastian (1826-1905), the founder of modern ethnology.
