Photographer's Note

Some 3000 years ago, some local Norwegians carved these
drawings in solid stone. This place just outside Stavanger, was a cultural place of great importance. They have found offerings from this era just 200 meters from this site. Some of the ships are about 1 meter in length.
Stone carvings like this are found all around the southern Norway and many are still not found. The red paint is of newer date to show the carvings, but if they find some today they are not aloud to paint them.
