The Wild Boar in Scandinavian Rock Art
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Department of Cultural Sciences.
2018 (English)In: Giving the past a future: Essays in archaeology and rock art; studies in honour of Dr. Phil. h.c. Gerhard Milstreu / [ed] James Dodd, Ellen Meijer, Oxford: Archaeopress, 2018, p. 112-120Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the rather scanty evidences of boar images in south Scandinavian rock art, and relates them to some general notions concerning wild boar hunting andthe role of the boar in the European Bronze Age. Panels where representations of boars appear are discussed in detail. Based on these observations, it is argued that south Scandinavian rock art displaying boars should be viewed within the wider European context, where the wild boar was a prominent animal, frequently occurring in contexts underlining the ideals of male hunters: like bravery, risk-taking, and heroism.
