Interesting pictorial tables, I wonder if they depict a story or serve

as an alphabet to teach written language to the novices.

I mean a lot of the carvings that were found.

.................musket
I photographed the two plates from a leaflet. They are accurate. Well, really, musket. Your guess is ...

a sort of alphabet - don´t think so

depict a story - well perhaps it depends on what you mean with "story". Sure there are "comics-like" storytelling on rocks, walls and so on. Don´t think there are epic links between the carvings at Tanum

Most experts tend to think that they have religious cult functions.

Don´t know. To me they work as pictures from long, long, long ago; telling (about) how life in various aspects was lived.

That is more than enough. Somebody made the effort, did all the carving. And here we are, thousands of years later


Anybody´s guess

Regrettably they are endangered. I cut some information. It would be nice to know how deep the carvings where originally
