Example text

The timeline of production is also important in order to compare chronologies and concentrations of coastal rock art. In this chapter we will briefly outline the method of data collection used to create the database of Scandinavian rock art using a Geographical Information System (ArcGIS 10) and introduce the five smaller-scale study areas.

This implies a close connection of inhabitants to coastal locations (Andersen 1995; Enghoff, MacKenzie and Nielsen 2007; Fischer 2004; Craig et al. 2011). These societies related to the maritime environment in this economic sense, but these maritime settings would have had many impacts on other aspects of their lives, for we can imagine that ‘People in traditional societies in coastal areas, on islands, as elsewhere, would not have separated ritual and habitual actions’ (Cooney 2004, 323). Rock art and burial sites both display a distributional link to watery environments, as Larsson (2003/04) and others have shown, and votive deposits of portable art and artefacts are well known from bog sites.

But there are also other natural activities at work in Scandinavia. This and other natural activities also affect how we calculate changes to relative sea level (Steffen and Wu 2011). The most comprehensive archaeological investigations of these phenomena in regards to rock art are two studies by Ling (2014 [2008]; 2012). by the end of the Bronze Age (Ling 2014, 111). 5 m of accumulated sediment. These data imply that in prehistory the actual altitude of the terrain would have been around a metre lower than present day (Ling 2014).
