IPTC INFO
CaptionEvery year when the sun regains its strength and the vernal equinox promises that spring is coming the pageant Carrus Navalis moves through the streets of Aalborg keeping an ancient tradition alive. The Carrus Navalis Car-naval parade in Aalborg is inspired by ancient pagan traditions and serves as a proclamation of spring fantasy and fertility - and the start of a new carnival season. _____________ In Norrköping in Sweden rock carvings from the Bronze Age 3500-1000 BC have been found. The rock carvings indicate that the custom with dragging a boat over land has been used in Scandinavia as well – presumably used in fertility ceremonies similar to the ones in both ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.
HeadlineCarrus Navalis – the boat that is dragged through the streets --- March 1. was until 153 BC the start of the new year.
