The site covers as much as 33 ships with crew carved into the rock. It`s believed to be more rock carvings in the area waiting to be discovered. We descending from the Roof of Jeløya, Rambergåsen, passed two farms and walked down to the coastline, and so further little bit up towards the forest: here we observed the rock carvings (Sunday 23rd March 2014).
