Readers interested in archaeology and prehistoric art may enjoy the Tanum Rock Art Research Centre. This non-profit museum is devoted to documenting rock art in Scandinavia and educating the public about this cultural resource, particularly regarding Tanum, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors to this website will find helpful background information explaining rock art research, such as ways to interpret rock art and the importance of documenting it, as well as galleries of rock art photographs organized by country. These galleries emphasize Scandinavian countries, but also include examples in Italy and other countries, as well as photos of field work and a collection of night photography. Under the motives tab, visitors will find discussions of the types of images observed in rock art, such as weapons, boats, humans, and animals. Readers may also be interested in the publications section, where articles can be read from Adoranten, the Scandinavian Society for Prehistoric Art's peer-reviewed magazine. The Tanum Rock Art Research Centre is managed by the Scandinavian Society for Prehistoric Art and is funded solely by donations and membership fees.
