Battle of Hafrsfjord and the Liberation of Bergen 8th May 1945

The battle of Hafrsfjord and the Liberation of Norway 8th May 1945 
I was lucky to have a trip to Norway in June on the first day of our trip a visit to Stavanger
included the Hafrsfjord site Just to give you a size of the swords I placed the wife next to them
 ( well if they fell over I would not be in the way )
Bergen my Dad served on HMS Woolston and in 1945 was one of the first ships in to Bergen to take the German surrender .

Im told the stones mark the places of the route of the first King of Norway's wife when she died  and put down as she was carried to her final resting place
