Rock Art and Seascapes in Uppland
Available in Stock
The province of Uppland on Sweden's east coast features around 1,000 Bronze Age rock carvings, mostly of ships. Many were discovered in the 20th century by Einar Kjellen, a brilliant amateur working before accurate contour maps of the area existed. This study revisits his findings using GPS to plot their exact location and altitude. Extensively illustrated with colour photographs, drawings and maps, it establishes the chronology of these remarkable artworks, and explores their relation to the changing prehistoric coastline.
