Rock carvings at Drotten


Rock carvings at Drotten

Rock carvings are found at Drotten, Fåberg, in Lillehammer municipality in the county of Oppland, Norway. The rock carvings are located west of the river Lågen about 1.5 km above the Brunlaug bridge (they are difficult to reach when the river is flooded).

There are a total of 11 carvings within a 4 m² area on a cliff by the river. Seven of these carvings could be moose. The rest are more ambiguous, but are also likely to be moose. The carvings are narrow and shallow, with the largest being 45 cm across.
