Address: Norrfors Umeå

The first discovery of rock carvings in the province of Västerbotten was made here in the summer of 1984. Most of the roughly 50 carvings are of elks. Similar figures have been found in Nämforsen on the Ångerman river. The carvings have been dated to around 2 000-3 000 B.C. The find area, which used to be an island in a sea bay, began to emerge from the sea in 3 500 B.C.
