Runestone

On our way home through rural Oklahoma, I saw a school sign, “Heavener, Home of the Runestones”. No one in the vehicle had heard of a runestone so I went straight to Wikipedia and began a search. Here is what I found:

The information I read aloud was very interesting, but lead to more questions by everyone riding along.  We couldn’t believe Norsemen actually lived in Oklahoma…

So the next day I found this video clip on You Tube. I was excited because I could actually see the site and hear how to correctly pronounce Heavener.

I shared the link with those who accompanied me on the trip. The next day my friend sent me another interesting link that more thoroughly explained current beliefs.

You never know when you will encounter such an interesting history lesson.
