Skepplanda Rock Art

As I returned to Skepplanda this afternoon I saw a road sign just outside of Skepplanda saying; Rock carvings (Skepplanda 20:1).

So I stopped the car and took a quick walk – the pathfinder sign is due for replacement though.

The rock carving was set at big rock wall at Stugåsberget, in my eyes it’s a bit of an odd placement but I’m no expert of the Swedish west coast rock carvings. These are normally dated to the Bronze Age, ca 1800-500 BC in Scandinavia.

The motive is a rather large ship ca 3 x 0,5 m and a wagon/carriage just below to the left.
