These magnificent large standing stones with runic inscriptions are found throughout the Viking and Anglo-Saxon landscape. They look impressive. They're many centuries old and some several thousand of them have been recorded but it doesn't mean there are some unaccounted for, undicovered and lost. Runestones were the memorials and headstones. Some were full of stories about gods and myths. Others were set with images of animals. Some runestones acted as gates. A list of just a few runestones and more can be found here:
