Overview

Petroglyphs are signs and symbols that were carved into the rock in the days when people lived from fishing and hunting. The carvings may be a celebration of good hunting grounds and large stocks of game, or magical pictures bestowing powers on the hunter over the animals he wanted to hunt.

The largest collection of prehistoric rock art in Møre og Romsdal is located at Bogge in Nesset. The oldest group dates back 6.000 years. This group lies 24 m.a.s. and contains approx. 50 animal carvings over a 15 m broad area. A large elk carving. most likely a bit older than the other carvings, has a dominating spot in the field. The other two fields are located closer to the sea and are 500 to 1000 years younger. These fields contain fish and boat carvings.

Bogge  is located approx. 6 km from the centre of Eidsvåg along RV 660 towards Eresfjord. There is a road down past the farm. Parking.
