Swords in the Rock ("Sverd i Fjell")
This imposing monument, by Norwegian sculptor Fritz Røed, commemorates the Battle of Hafrsfjord in 872, which took place here. The three swords, firmly planted into a rocky hill, stand roughly 20 meters high; the largest represents the victorious King Harald Fairhair, the first king to rule over all of Norway.
