Swords in Rock

At Hafrsfjord we find the monument "Swords in Rock". It was here Harald Hårfagre fought a battle that united Norway into one kingdom in 872 AD.

The monument represents peace, unity and freedom. The Viking swords' hilts are modelled on swords found in various parts of the country. The monument was made by Friz Røed (1928-2002) and unveiled by King Olav in 1983.

The monument can be reached by bus nr. 16 from the centre of Stavanger, to Madlaleiren approx. 10 minutes.
