In Alvhem (= the home of the elves) ca 40 km northeast of Gothenburg on Jätteberget (the mountain of giants) is a small rock with a number of beautiful rock carvings, Skepplanda 56:1. The rock is ca 10 x 5 m.

Most of the carvings on this rock are of ships but there are also few animals and couple of humans and some cup marks etc.

On top of the mountain is a cairn, though heavily damaged (since long ago), and a few hundred meters north of the rock carvings finds of flint has been made.
