Default Discovery of 10,000-year-old petroglyph in Norway described as ‘sensational’

Discovery of 10,000-year-old petroglyph in Norway described as ‘sensational’


A petroglyph of a boat discovered in northern Norway has been estimated to date back 10,000 to 11,000 years.

The petroglyph was discovered by retired geologist Ingvar Lindahl at Efjorden in the Nordland county, reports broadcaster NRK.

Analysis has now estimated the petroglyph, which depicts a boat, to be between 10,000 and 11,000 years old, according to the report.

“This is an extremely important development, a global sensation in fact, and will enter the history of research in a very, very big way,” archaeologist Jan Magne Gjerde of Tromsø University told NRK.
