Description


This book is the first comprehensive introduction and guide to Sweden's most spectacular Stone Age monuments: the dolmens and passage graves, which began to be constructed over 5000 years ago. The introduction provides a detailed social interpretation of these monuments outlining how and why they were built and the ways in which they related to economy and landscape, politics, ceremony, symbolism and belief. This is followed by a systematic regional guide to all the major monuments in Sk Halland, V ergotland, and and Bohusl illustrated by numerous photographs, plans and maps.
