A nearly 1,000 year-old rune stone has been rediscovered at Bogesunds brygga west of Vaxholm in Sweden.
The rune stone was found during an excursion which was part of a course in landscape archaeology at Stockholm University. The stone has previously been known, but had been missing since the 17th century.
The runic script was carved into the stone sometime during the years 1050-80.
The characters were written down by antiquarian Peringskiöld in the 17th century, which means that virtually the entire text is already known. Hearsay said the stone was located somewhere around Bogesunds brygga and antiquarian Richard Dybeck searched for it in the 1870s without finding it. Read more.
