Thanks, I don't know, must be granite or some other hard stone I imagine.

Here's another shot, not a good composition but it shows just how big they are, see the person next to them!

Re: Swords in the stone

Wow! Those Vikings were obviously true men! From the pics, I would have thought these are made of bronze?! To bad I missed to see the swords when I once visited Stavanger. Probably they weren't errected back in 1995?
