Drive Our Ships to New Lands: 10,000 Year Old Depictions of Boats
Who knows how much ancient art has been lost to the ravages of time. We are fortunate some life-sized petroglyphs of boats have been identified in Norway:
The two images are thought to have been made around 10,000-11,000 years ago, 3,000 years before other boat carvings in northern Europe.
First identified in 2017, the boats appear as white outlines carved into the grey rock surface, and can only be seen clearly under the right light and weather conditions. One boat originally measured around 4.3 metres in length, though only one end now remains due to erosion. It was probably a life-size representation, like nearby carvings of animals, which include seals, reindeer, a possible porpoise, and perhaps even a polar bear. A second boat image is less well-preserved, with only around three metres still visible.
