Abstract [en]

The rock paintings of the hunter-gatherers in the province of Norrland, and their localisation.

The aim of this thesis is to find a couple of distinguishing features for the localisation of the rock paintings of the hunter-gatherers in Norrland. This will be done through studies of Swedish and international literature, about ancient rock-art and the belief system of the hunter-gatherers. I will make comparisons  with other groups of hunter-gatherers and try to find analogies. My belief is that there must be a large number of undetected rock paintings in Norrland. They are hard to find because of overgrowth by lichen and damages due to wethering. Theretoo I feel that there hasn´t been enough of structured surveys. I hope that my resulting short list of practical clues of where to find them will help:

  • seek for them in the boreal forest area from 200 meters above the sea level to the present alpine tree line zone
  • in close vicinity to neolithic winter dwellings
  • in close vicinity to pitfall traps
  • on vertical rock walls of cliffs or boulders
  • in close vicinity to standing water/ alternatively in a hillside in the forest
  • the rock faces to the south
  • on imposing natural formations
  • try to find them in cloudy, humid weather
