Museum in Visby, Gotland.

 These ancient stone markers are in a small but interesting museum in the town of Visby, on the Swedish Island of Gotland. The interesting thing about the photo of a boat above, is the striking similarity between it and the images of boats seen on monuments in ancient Egypt.
 The carvings have worn away with time, but the more important ones have had a bit of paint applied so that the images can be seen. I love all the people in this boat with it's single large sail
                                               A lovely collection of patterns on this one.
                                           Some reindeer perhaps and a wheel like symbol.
