Overview

When the ferry sails through the Boknasund strait, it follows what has been the coastal road since time immemorial. The prehistoric site along the strait is proof that Bokn was a busy and important location along the coast. When Bishop Neumann in 1838 embarked on a visit to Bokn, he reported on two burial sites on East Bokn, and 43 mounds or stone circles on the opposite side, in Alvestad, Sæbø and Boknaberg. Large grave mounds are found along the strait, the largest being "Resegreftene" which is located in Alvestad.
