4,000 years ago

Our World Heritage: 4,000 years ago, there were permanent settlements on the High Coast. At Bjästamon, Bronze Age people lived for several centuries next to a bay of that time. The land uplift at that time was 1.5 metres in 100 years and shorelines moved farther out and downwards in the High Coast’s steep landscape. You can see how new settlements always follow the newest shoreline. 

Other World Heritages: Both Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles in United Kingdom are believed to have been built 4,600 years ago. But even today, no one can understand exactly how the stone circles were done or why.
