Welcome to the official site of the Finnish Society for Prehistorical art
The Finnish Society for Prehistorical Art (FSPA) promotes an understanding of prehistorical art and the conception of the ancient world and environment among the Finno-Ugrian people and other nations. The Society gives information about prehistorical art and publishes the AURINKOPEURA collection of articles of this subject.
FSPA arranges seminars on different prehistorical themes and excursions in Finland and abroad.
FSPA supports the education for knowledge of cultural heritage.
The aim of the FSPA is to make world acquinted with the rock paintings in Finland, respect and protect them.
FSPA co-operates with societies and official organizations with similar purposes, especially with the Estonian Society of Prehistorical Art, the Scandinavian Society for prehistorical Art and the Karelian Rock Art Centre.
The Finnish Society for Prehistorical Art was established in 1998.
Even though this site is maintained in Finnish, in the section 'Suomen kalliomaalaukset' you can familiarize with Finnish rock art sites via photos taken by our members.
