Sweden - Götaland - Bohuslän


There are many sites where prehistoric traces of men in Bohuslän remain. That of Tanum is probably most remarkable. It dates from the beginning of the age of bronze (1500-500 before JC) and its richness enables it to belong world to the UNESCO world heritage. This presence of our ancestors appears through rupestral engravings on rocks and by tumulus.
