On top of a pile of rocks in the middle of a cultivated field, off the track and unnoticed by most, you can find this majestic and enigmatic slab of limestone; a standing stone hardly ever mentioned in the sources.
The stone and the site where it is located has traditionally been called Höge Hall (High Hall). The hole in the lower middle of the stone is considered by some to be man-made, perhaps to perform an astronomical calendar function or to perform a religious function as a depiction of the Eye of Odin. The site as a whole has also been suggested as being placed along a so called ley-line.
Even if there is some credibility to the solar calendar theory, the hole in the stone might as well be unintentional, as it seems to be part of an old crack that at some time has split the stone in half (to be fair, the crack could also have been a consequence of drilling the hole). The calender/religious function hypothesis is therefore possibly yet another example of what happens when wishful thinking, and our need to see mystery where no such mystery necessarily exists, is taking control of our faculties when dealing with the past and relics of bygone eras.
History is so filled with great happenings, great thoughts and great people that we do not need to invent them all over again in more spectacular form. To do so belittles them as much as it does ourselves. The Pyramids were not built by aliens (why would aliens use stone ffs?) and Höge Hall isn't placed along an energy line undetectable by science; Odin's Eye can simply be a hole from where a shard has fallen of an old and broken piece of limestone (a fragile mineral) that may have been given some post-damage love from a stone carver. All this remains true until we find sources of information with enough scientific value to convince us otherwise. Until that day they are incredible examples of our extraordinary ancestors' ingenuity and craftsmanship, which half-baked mystery theories shouldn't intrude upon.
The Eye of Odin sounds pretty cool, though ... can't argue with that.
