You will meet some of the fictional residents of Tanum from that age, Akaz, Nenna, Alawin, Glicc and Glär – people recreated from archaeological finds from graves and settlements. In the story of their lives and adventures you will gain insight into the everyday life of Bronze Age Tanum, and you can follow exciting journeys out into Europe in pursuit of the golden bronze.
