stavanger swords


Sverd I Fjell (Swords In Rock) is a monument comprising three 10 metre tall swords. It can be found at Hafrsfjord, just outside of Stavanger, Norway.

The three swords commemorate the Battle Of Hafrsfjord where the famous King Harald Fairhair united all of Norway under his rule. The large sword represents Harald and the two smaller swords represent the two petty kings whom he defeated to unite the realm.
