|Fantastic! Now that really is rock art!|
|I agree and looking forward to our field trip to Sweden 26/08/05 - 29/08/05. Also we are linking up with a Rock Art recording Field School in Italy 01/08/05 - 10/08/05. For details on how to book and prices have a look at the www.archaeology-safaris.co.uk website. Cheers AS.|
| Could these not be sleds rather than boats?|

|these are stylized depictions of (bronze age) boats. It becomes more obvious when studying more of the thousands of boat carvings. These often include depictions of prows and human activities on board. |
| I think some of them may well represent sledges. Useful in winter situations where boats are not.|

| Winter situations? According to current state of research the climate in that regions was not generally different from today. They most probably had no harsh winter scenarios. And if they would have liked to depict sledges they certainly would have not forgotten about the pulling animals (compare depictions of ploughs or carts). |
