Interpretations of footprints in the Bronze Age rock art of south Scandinavia
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Department of Cultural Sciences.
2017 (English)In: Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society, ISSN 0079-497X, E-ISSN 2050-2729, Vol. 83, p. 289-303Article in journal (Refereed) Published
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.
