Platsen för Leif Erikssons runsten på Vinland, vänd mot norr

The Leif Eriksson runestone was 
planed and carved on Adelsö in Sweden 
during the period January to July 2000.

The 2 meter high runestone weighs 1,7 ton.

It stands to day at the northern cape of Newfoundland, 
near the viking habitant that was found in the 60's by the Norwegian couple Helge and Anne Stine Ingestad.
