A copy of the Kjølevik stone was made by Kåre Tveit and unveiled
in 1982 at Kjølevik, Strand in Ryfylke. The original was found 100 years earlier in the ceiling of a
potato cellar in Kjølevik. A year later, this original stone was moved
to the collection of the University of Oslo, where it is now exhibited.
The inscription of Old Norse runes probably dates back to the time
of migrations in 400-450 AD.
