This guide information of all cairns (or standing stones) and crosses you can find in Expeditions: Viking, so you may earn the three related achievements or some extra skill points, as you gain one point for every cairn found and knocked down.

Cairns in general are only one in an area, unless it's a large area explore. Then there are more cairns to find.

The crosses can only be found in Britain. You can find only one cross per area, with the exception of Scarborough, where you can find two of them.

Number Area Location


Scarborough Near the entrance of the house of the mayor.
2. Scarborough In the middle of the monastery. Access to the monastery can be gained during Parsley Sage Rosemary Thyme or after the quest, but it will turn the village into a hostile place. Alternately if you move your party to the wall/gate just north of the monastery enough of the Fog of War will be removed to expose the cross and allow you to click on it. You do NOT need to enter the monastery or turn the town against you to collect this one.
3. Lindisfarne

Cross can be found in front of the church.

4. Perth In the centre of the town, close to the hall of king Caustantin mac Fergusa.
5. Eoforwic (York) The cross can be found near the docks of Eoforwic.
6. Yngilwood The cross can be found north in the area near the center of the northwestern edge of the area.
7. Swamp Cross can be found near the road, close to the tower.
8. Dun Phris In the centre of the town. Does NOT require completing Fort of the Thicket. If you move close to the walls of the camp, enough of the fog of war is revealed to allow you to click on the cross without needing to enter. Using Highlight All [default left Alt] helps to locate it.
9. Ravine Cross can be found near the area where the pyreflies are. Area is added to the map during Wisdom of the Ancients.
10. Donncoirce Homestead In the centre of the burnt down homestead. Area is added to the map at the start of A Gaelic Alliance.
