Folhammar, Gotland, Sweden- Throughout the Nordic countries of Sweden, Norway and Finland, beyond the arctic circle to 71º N. and particularly around the shorelines of the Baltic Sea, stones and boulders were used to mark out the walls of the labyrinth. Over 500 examples are recorded. Stone labyrinths are also known from Iceland, Arctic Russia and Estonia; all of these outlying groups have probably originated from Nordic settlers or trading contacts.
