Pictographs from the UNESCO site of Alta from a 1996 3v 'Tourism' stamp. Thousands of images are across Alta, north of the arctic circle, spanning over 45 known sites, and dating to as early as 5,000 BCE. A meeting place for thousands of years, this rock art relates to glacial history, population movement and subsistence. 
The set was issued in booklets, this stamp was correctly used from the international rate booklet.


  1. After browsing your site for a while, I didn’t realize that there are many archeological stamps available that were released so far! Most archeological stamps I happen to have came from China and Japan. I liked the name of your website, it seems so much like Tomb Raider, the adventurous gal who is also a collector of archeological relics and artifacts.
