Description

Several discoveries of ancient monuments reveal that Bokn has had a central position throughout history. If you are driving from Stavanger to Haugesund, the trip will take you through the island community of Bokn. When you cross the bridge from the west to east side of Bokn, you can see on both sides of the sound a stone monument and burial mound that date from the early Bronze age. A beautiful gold buckle from the viking age was discovered near the burial mound in 1923.
