The Viking Sigurd Stones

Heathen By Nature

The Sigurd Stones are located in Sweden. The Sigurd Stones includes seven or eight runestones and one picture stone that characterize imagery from the legend of Sigurd the dragon slayer. They are considered as the first Norse representation of “Sigurd the dragon slayer” legend. This legend then became the German lore as the Nibelungenlied. Nibelungenlied (an epic poem about Siegfried and his wife Kriemhild) was written in Middle-High German. Moreover in Great Britain also had some stones which were constructed by the Vikings in order to describe their invasion’s stories. Through these legends, the Vikings want to tell the world about their great history and to show who they really are.
