Some facts and information about rock carvings
Scandinavian rock carvings are usually dated to the bronze age, i.e. to the period c:a 1800 - 500 B.C. In our time, we don't really know why the rock carvings were made, nor what they were supposed to mean or symbolize. We assume they depict special events or even ceremonies. Maybe someone could be honoured with a rock carving if one achieved something very meaningful or grand?
bronze age was a cultural high period in the history of Scandinavia. The
climate was about the same as you will find today in the Mediterranean
area. There are also scientists today holding the opinion that at least
some of the rock carvings depict traders and merchant ships from the eastern
Mediterranean areas who came to trade with us northern dwellers. True
or false ...?
The rock carvings are made in different styles. It depends on who has made them and there are time related variances, too. Regional differences are also apparent.
