Hällristningarna i Hästholmen

|Translated by Google translation|

On one of the Ice Age abraded rock at Hästholmen, is an inscription that recalls a new and important era in the history of the landscape.
It is the high culture that we call the Bronze Age and in Östergötland is known by the numerous rock carvings.

On Hästholmen outcrops have inhuggits few ships with (fondly?) Embracing people. Cautious archaeologists say that the image probably reflects a wedding couple in a ship. In other words, we would at Vättern see a love and fruktbarhetsrit practiced for 3000 years ago.

Other motifs found in Hästholmen are animals, hunting scenes, people and called älvkvarnar. Älvkvarnar or cup marks are small depressions in the rock that probably had some kind of significance in the context victim.
