archiological site is a low south-facing cliff about 200 metres from Hafrsfjord,
and was discovered in 1879.
You may be surprised on arrival, as it seems like the site is in the garden of a house - and it is!
The ship or boat symbols are common in Scandinavian rock carvings and many are found here.
The hand symbols represent Gods who should not be directly portrayed.
The meaning of some of the carvings is still not known.
