This stone is perhaps the oldest #Viking rune stone found in Södermanland. The vertical rune lines and lack of ornamentation tells that this is an early inscription. The stone is from the second half of the 900s. The rune stone was actually found inside a burial mound, in 1856. It had probably been placed on the top of the grave in the beginning, but over the passing 800 years since it was raised, it seems to have slowly sunk into the ground and been hidden by the growing grass.
#Norway's #Lofoten Islands are best known for their excellent fishing and nature attractions. Here is a small sample of what you can do on Lofoten: dive the #Arctic Circle, fish with professional fishermen, and more importantly, watch the #NorthernLights! Sounds like a perfect trip to us.
