Unveiling of the Restored Jellinge Stone Replica

Unveiling of the Restored Jellinge Stone Replica in Utrecht
The DDCC is thrilled to announce that DDCC together with the University of Utrecht and the Embassy of Denmark in the Netherlands will hold an event to unveil the restored replica of the Danish Jellinge Stone at the Domplein in Utrecht on 29 May 2024.
The Jellinge stones in Denmark were raised by viking kings Gorm Den Gamle and Harald Blåtand. The larger of the two stones was raised by Harald Blåtand and is considered  Denmark’s baptismal certificate (Danmarks dåbsattest) and is associated with the creation of Denmark as a nation state. A bit of history in English can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelling_stones
A replica of the larger Jelline stone was placed in Utrecht in 1936 at the Domplein on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the University of Utrecht. Prior to the event on 29 May 2024, this replica will be restored.
