Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the occurrence of a number of axe images at Simrishamn in Scania and at Stonehenge in Wessex, all of which can bedated to the Arreton phase/Montelius’ period 1, 1750/1700–1500 BC. These two concentrations are the only major clusters of axe images in northern Europe dating to this time. In order to understand this situation a model is discussed, which implies that these two areas were linked by a network of people who traded in metal and amber. Amber collected along the coasts of the Baltic Sea went westwards, ending up as prestigious amber objectsin Wessex; in return metal was traded from England to south Scandinavia. The function and value of amber and metal was thus different in the two areas. It is argued that differences in the conceptualisation of metal are reflected in the ways axe images are arranged and displayed in Wessex and Scania.

Abstract [en]

The Scandinavian landscape is littered with postglacial outcrops, many of which carry engraved motifs. Although drawings of ships are most often discussed, this paper focuses on representations of feet. In Northern Europe ship motifs are often associated with cosmologies based on the movement of the sun. This paper investigates whether drawings of feet could have been associated with the same worldview. A number of interpretations are offered of the images at two sites in different parts of Sweden: Järrestad 13:1 and Boglösa 138:1.
