A Roll in the Universe

Almost 950

When I read that Bergen was getting ready to celebrate 950 years in 2020, I suddenly felt old. I remember when this plaque was new: 

Commemorative stone Bergen 900 years

Stones from all the counties of Norway were used to create this commemorative plaque for Bergen’s 900th anniversary in 1970. The caption reads “1070 Bergen City 1970 / Norway’s cities lay down these stones”. (The number of cities has increased a lot since 1970.)

  1. Wow, that’s so cool.

  2. I’d like to share this little bit of history and the photo with my mother and kids. Would you send it to me? ☺
