Rock-art-lollapalooza part 2: the Fossum site

Next stop on my Rock art lollapalooza in the UNESCO world Herritage site Tanum is Fossum. The rock art in Tanum is dated to the Bronze Age, ca 1500-1000 BC.

Among the pictures are hunting scenes, people holding axes, people playing horns and of course lots of ships, animals, foot soles and cup marks etc.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves!

 There’s still more to come 🙂

Kinky Rockcarvings in Sweden

Kinky Rockcarvings in Sweden by Hjalmar Olsson is presented as an entirely new kind of history book, I’ve not read so I don’t know nothing about it bur who can resist such an equivoque tile. After reading about it I think history book is perhaps not the correct definition, but it seems fun.

Regarding the interpretations the publishers mentions that they may not be entirely accurate, who would have guessed? But sometimes you got to let the scientific interpretation stand back in favor of a looser and crazier interpretation. And who knows in the middle of crazy is perhaps something useful.

According to the publishers it is a 64-page book with pictures of genuine rock carvings from the Bronze Age, depicting erotic scenes of all kinds.

As they interpretation is in eye of the interpreter.

The carvings in the book are from the Tanum area in Bohuslän, Sweden, a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
