When it came to the museum in 1910, it entered the public eye, and became the focal point of a debate that kept resurfacing throughout the 1900s – a debate regarding the stone head’s history and origin: Is it a pagan god or does it express something different? Who found it and when did this happen?
Rossland is a rich cultural heritage site, which may have been a place of worship during the Older Iron Age, seen in the context of the pre-Christian period and fertility rites. Rosslandsguden and the stone vessels are exhibited at Dalane Folkemuseum’s facility at Slettebø in Egersund.
The site is always open
