Stone Age Cave

Stone Age Cave at Vista

Vistehålå, or the Stone Age cave at Viste, is located in the municipality of Randaberg, just northwest of Stavanger.

People lived here between 6000 and 8000 years ago! 

Among the findings are arrowheads with flint and fishing hooks made out of bone. Near the eastern portion of the cave the remains of a 15 year old boy who lived there 7500 years ago was found. Around 70 different species of non-domestic animals have also been found there - the most common being wild bore, birds and fish.


The cave is 8-9 meters deep and 4-5 meters wide with an opening facing the North Sea.
