The reindeer rock art Bølareinen, mentioned in my last post, is probably the most known single rock carving in Norway. But the best known rock art site is definitely the rock art of Alta, in Finnmark, almost as far north as you can come. Alta has the largest concentration of rock art in Northern Europe. I was there two years ago, and it was really impressive. It is also a Unesco World Heritage Site.
According to the Unesco organization the rock drawings of Alta constitute the most important piece of evidence in favour of the existence of human activity in the confines of the Great North during the prehistoric period.
There are many reindeers in Alta, even herds of reindeers are engraved in stone. But there are also a lot of other animals, and even people. People who are shown hunting, dancing and living their life.
There are more pictures in my collection of photo galleries from Norwegian rock art sites.
