    Viking rune stones

    by Sjalen Updated Mar 30, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These stones did not stand here (Lundagård, near the university) originally, but in various places around the county. It is still nice to be able to see them here as many stones have been smashed up by farmers by mistake as they are often found in agricultural areas. Most stones here are from Christian times although there are earlier ones in Skåne. They all have messages in memory of brave warriors who died abroad or similar in runic script. You will find more stones in the Kulturen museum and in the University library and can mail me for more all over Sweden if this appeals to you.
