12 000 years ago

 The so-called Hensbackakulturen is considered one of the oldest settlements in western Sweden. The first traces of people in the area are about 12 000 years old. The settlement on Hensbacka was not far from Saltkällefjorden and the people mainly survived by hunting and fishing. Today there are no visible signs of settlement. The period is usually called the older Stone Age, the Stone Age or Mesolithic time.
