Rock carvings at Släbro
Släbro is without question one of Sweden’s greatest and most remarkable rock carvings. Situated near the River of Nyköping the carvings were discovered 1984 and can be dated back to the Bronze Age. They are unique because they are carved in a most unusual way. The characteristics commonly found throughout carvings in the South of Sweden are missing. What is more, the Släbro carvings seem to bear no similarity to any other ancient carvings that have been discovered throughout Europe. The carvings date from 1800 – 400 BC and thus far the meaning behind them remains something of a mystery as it has proven to be extremely difficult to interpret the motif as it appears in literally hundreds of different ways.
