DENMARK - Jelling Mounds, Runic Stones and Church

"The Jelling burial mounds and one of the runic stones are striking examples of pagan Nordic culture, while the other runic stone and the church illustrate the Christianization of the Danish people towards the middle of the 10th century." -http://whc.unesco.org

The large runic stone which is also called "Denmark's Christening Certificate" with the most ancient image of Christ in the North.
