About the Stora Hammar Viking Runestone in Sweden:
"Depicted are scenes with mythological, religious and martial background, including a sacrifice scene with a Valknut over the altar, and a longship manned with armed warriors. It has been interpreted as illustrating the legend of Hildr. The runestone includes an image of a warrior about to be hung from a tree with a Valknut nearby, considered to be Odin's cult symbol, giving validity to reports regarding human sacrifice in Norse paganism." -- from Wikipedia
