Description: English: 2008-07-14 Qobustan, Azerbaijan: Petroglyphs of a reed boat and men. The reed boat is similar to those depicted in cave paintings in Scandinavia, something that made Thor Heyerdahl to theorise that the Scandinavians came from the area that today is Azerbaijan. In the Qobustan Petroglyph Reserve there are more than 6,000 petroglyphs carved by the hunter-gatherers that lived in these caves 12,000 years ago. At that time the Caspian Sea was a lot higher and washed against the lower rocks in the hill.
