Store Rygbjergstenen (rune stone)
The Store Rygbjerg stone is situated at Frederikshåb north west of Egtved.
The runic stone was discovered in 1874. The stone sits on a small grave mound and has the following inscription: "Bryden Tue rejste denne sten over Thorgunn sin lege. Disse stave vil leve længe", which is ancient Danish. In current Danish that means that Tue erected this stone in the memory of his wife. The inscription is therefore referred to as Denmark’s first love poem.
The stone has once been split in two, but is now sitting in its original place again.
