Istrehågan - Skipssetningen

Stone Circle in Norway

A Skipssetningen (stone ship setting) and three stone circles dating from 400 - 500 AD. In the Vestfold region.



Ekeberg

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Norway

Rock art site on E outskirts of Oslo. In Carlsborgvien off Kongsvien. In July 2000 it was an 18 or 19 tram to the Sjømannsskolen stop. There are images of elk, deer and humans.



Haugen Petroglyphs

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Norway

A rock art site with some unusual motifs.



Hunn

Stone Circle in Norway

Another site on the Østfold "Prehistoric Road". Nine stone circles and a number of burial mounds can be seen here. Excavated circles have contained cremations from the late 1st millennium BC. Nearby is a small rock carving.



Begby Helleristninger

An interesting composition. Two boats in which the crew are represented by full figures rather than the single lines sometimes used. Note the different boat designs with a double line outline on one and a single line on the other. Bottom left is a two-wheeled cart drawn by two clearly-identifiable animals. Bottom right is a different design of a two-wheeled cart drawn by two more stylised animals.





Hornnes

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Norway

Just across the E6 from Solberg is Hornnes - another rock art site on "The Prehistoric Road".

21 ships on an almost vertical rock face all pointing to the sea. The detail is so clear that it is possible to date them from their design - to the late Bronze Age.





Solberg

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Norway

In the Østfold region near the border with Sweden is the route 110 between Skjeberg and Fredrikstad known as "The Prehistoric Road" (Oldtidsveien) due to the large number of ancient sites along the route.

It is particularly rich in rock art and an English language booklet The Rock Carving Tour, Østfold gives details of all the sites including the non rock art ones. The route can conveniently be added to the Swedish sites covered in the more extensive Rock Carving Tour, Bohuslän (English booklet also available). All these sites are well-signposted with parking and interpretation boards.



Alta

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Norway

This is rock art in the land of the midnight sun - the Finnmark area of Norway. The carvings in this Unecso Work Heritage site were not discovered until 1973. It is estimated that there are between 2500 and 3000 carvings dating back to around 4200 BC. They show people, animals, boats, fish and weapons. The Visitor Centre is open until 11pm in the summer months.



Austre Åmøy

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Norway

The small island of Austre Åmøy north of Stavanger used to be somewhat remote but it is now on the E39 connected to the mainland by an impressive series of undersea tunnels and bridges.

It has a large collection of rock art with 10 different panels of which the more important are signposted.



Oppe på den høye åsryggen øst for Brastad finner vi en eldgammel gravplass. Ved første øyekast ser den ikke så imponerende ut, og mange har sikkert gått forbi den uten å ane at de mosegrodde steinrøysene, i alt 11, som ligger der, hører til de viktigste minnene vi har om Liers forhistorie. Men ser vi nøyere på disse røysene og tenker over hva for et arbeid det har vært å samle og bare sammen slike mengder med stein, begynner vi å ane hva som ligger bakom.




Gravrøyser på Brastad- åsen.

Gravrøysene ble gjerne bygd opp omkring en gravkiste som var murt av heller. Her hadde den døde med seg både mat, drikke og klær. Over denne kista dynget de så opp gråstein, slik at det kunne bli en røys av svære dimensjoner. Røysene på Brastad-åsen hører langt fra til de største, men også her har enkelte røyser en anselig størrelse. Røysene ligger alltid høyt, og gjerne med utsikt til fjorden, som her, eller til andre ferdselsveier som elver eller vann.
