The Kensington rune stone is discovered on Olof Ohman’s farm, near Alexandria. The stone tells of a group of Vikings who traveled to Minnesota in 1362, but its authenticity has long been the subject of debate.

Thanks to Carver Scott Educational Cooperative-students in the Stepping Stones and Ascent Programs for the research on November’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
