Advisory Body Evaluation
Rock Carvings in Tanum
UNESCO World Heritage

"The Bronze Age rock carvings in Tanum represent a unique artistic achievement through their rich and varied motifs and skilful and detailed depictions of animals, humans, ships, weapons, and symbols of Bronze Age man. The often lively scenes and complex compositions of elaborate motifs illustrate everyday life, warfare, cult, and religion. Some of the panels (eg. Fossum, Vitlycke, and Aspeberget) were obviously planned in advance. In many cases the motifs, techniques, and compositions are exceptional testimony of the European Bronze Age Culture."
