UNESCO World Heritage site of Tanum Unesco

The rock carvings in Tanum constitute a priceless part of our cultural heritage of mankind and have therefore been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994. In that way Sweden has taken the responsibility preserving rock art for the future.

The Heritage Site in Tanum is an outstanding example of Bronze Age art of the highest quality, where people from the Bronze Age carved out thousands of images on smooth rocks in the landscape of Bohuslän. The range of motifs is a unique testimony of life during the European Bronze Age.
