A bus from Österlens museum took participants to the location that was illuminated by grazing light. Archaeologists told the stories of the petroglyphs and a Bronze Age buffé was served. On Sunday from 10-16 researchers where available at petroglyphs in Järrestad to answer questions, tell about the rock carvings. Visitors were also given the possibility to make their own frottage – a copy of the rock carving on carbon paper.
