Rogaland in SW Norway has a large number of rock art sites within relatively limited geographical areas. I wish to present a longlived rock art tradition that marked places within the landscape using five examples of significant rock art sites and the difference in choice of place and imagery. The carving activity and the interaction with the rock may have reinforced personal relationship and may have impacted upon memories of those producing rock art and of the wider social memory of audience (Enlander 2016: 46-47) which was not forgotten through generations in the region.
