Old ... drawings

One of the oldest things I've ever seen have been the amazing rock carvings in Tanum, Sweden, on the west coast close to the Norwegian border, from the Nordic Bronze Age (~1700-500 BC)
There are several large petroglyph sites in the area, about 600 panels, and of an amazing variety. We have been lucky to observe several archaeologists at work when visiting and learnt that the red colour has to be refreshed every seventh to tenth year, depending on the water exposure.
