Viking Adventurers

Sometime in the distant pass a group of Vikings traveled south along the wilds of the Dnieper River in what is today the Ukraine. They came to the Black Sea for pillage or trade none can say. But here the goodly Grani took the time to carve a rune stone for his comrade, Karl, who died.

Found on the island of Berezanji in the Dnieper Estuary, it speaks of a time of high adventure!

A thousand years later, we remember Karl and Grani!
