Bradley, Richard, Jones, Andrew M., Nordenborg-Myhre, Lise and Sackett, Hannah (2003) Sailing through Stone: Carved Ships and the Rock Face at Revheim, Southwest Norway Norwegian Archaeological Review, 35, (2), pp. 109-118. (doi:10.1080/002936502762389738).

Record type: Article


The relationship between rock art and the material qualities of the rock surface on which it is executed is investigated. The case study of Revheim, Rogaland, Southwest Norway, is the starting-point for a discussion on the way in which the contours of the rock, quartz outcrops and the flow of water across the rock surface affect the placement of images on the rock. It is argued that a fuller examination of the interrelationship between rock and rock art provides a more coherent interpretation of rock art images.
