Happy New Year! With a cavalcade of images from 2015

The rock art at Alta never ceases to fascinate! Here from the Kåfjord site in the fall of 2015. I'm very grateful that I've been able to work with the good people at The World Heritage Rock Art Centre - Alta Museum for some years now. Photo by Per Storemyr

I wish to thank my clients, partners, colleagues and followers of my website for a fine year! The very best to you all for 2016! With a cavalcade of images, I would like to sum up a few 2015 events. First of all, I was finally able to finish my book on the history of stone quarries, which was published jointly by The Restoration Workshop of Nidaros Cathedral and the Geological Survey of Norway. But my work took me to many parts of Norway, from a Mesolithic quartz quarry near Arendal, deep down south, to the fascinating rock art at Alta, far in the north. Though I was not able to visit Egypt in 2015, I’m still publishing papers on the geoarchaeology of quarries in the desert landscape, together with good colleagues.

About Per Storemyr

I work with the archaeology of old stone quarries, monuments and rock art. And try to figure out how they can be preserved. For us - and those after us. For the joy of old stone!
