The runestone to the left has been set up by the viking king "Gorm the Old" about the year 950 AD. The stone is called "The name certification of Denmark", because it was the first time "Denmark" was mentioned.
The other runestone has been set up by his son "Harald Bluetooth" about year 965 AD. The stone is called "The birth certification of Denmark", because he wrote that he cristianized the danes.

I am fascinated of precision of details..it is incredible, difficult to believe, that so deep in history people was able to make it.. it reminds me of pictures from books by Erich von Däniken.
Thank you for little bit of your history my dear Jan:)
The vikings were the first Danes that was writing :) I like to read Erich von Däniken also.
Have a good evening my dear Dagmar:)
