    Kinnekulle and Billingen – 2 plateau-mountains in Skaraborg, Västergötland, Sweden. A stratigraphic study by Skaraborgs museum museum: Billingen

    The two plateau-mountains Kinnekulle and Billingen were created both by sedimentary strata and volcanic flows. Parts of their characteristic stratigraphic rock series – bedrock, sandstone, alum shale, limestone, slate, and diabase – are laid bare in open cast mines in the mountains. Kinnekulle and Billingen are here studied through an inventory of strategies of visualization used by different individuals and institutions that have approached these mountains.
