Jutland Stones May Bear New Runic Inscriptions

Seven stones have been discovered in the vicinity of Denmark's 10th century Jellinge stones. One or two of the new stones may also have runic inscriptions.

'I have no doubts that this is a prehistoric structure,' said Peter Mohr Christensen, one of Vejle Museum's archaeologists, to Ritzau.

The stones - some up to two square meters in size - lay partially buried in the area surrounding Jellinge church on Jutland, the site of the original two stones. Christensen believes the stones and the hill where they were found served as a ship launch for the Vikings or perhaps later groups.
