Artist's Description

This is a runic stone inscribed on
four sides. Two sides are covered in
narrative images.The older runic
letters are typical of the 8th century.
About 200 years later there has been
an additional message inscribed.
(Top, right)

To protect the inscriptions from acid
rain and other downfall the stone
has got it´s own building in the
village of Sparlösa, where it was found.
A very influential farmer or small
king showed his power by having
this monument made.
