Namforsen (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by bogman The rock art lies behind this railing and is very extensive, more can be seen before 8am when the water is released though I did not venture that early, it was my first time seeing rock art and was very impressed, if this image is appropriate please delete it, the rock art was discovered and investigated by archaeologists during the Dam construction though locals knew about it before hand
"Nämforsen in Näsåker is a site of one of the largest collections of rock-carvings in northern Europe. About 2300 different figures and lines have been chipped out on the rocky islands of Notön, Brådön, Laxön and their adjacent shores close to the rapids"
