Misspelled runestone in numerous Upplandsfynd
"Misspelled runestone in numerous Upplandsfynd"

"What do you do for a misspelled rune stone? Hacks where a correction of course."

"An example of this is included in the more recent extensive runstensfynd in the Upland."

"In the autumn, four new runstensfynd from the viking age have been made at the Lena church, two miles north of Uppsala."

"– So many new discoveries in such a short time has not been since the 40 - and 50-century major renovations of churches, " says archaeologist Robin Lucas on as the uppland museum."

"the Archaeologists found the unusually numerous finds in connection with the redevelopment in and outside the church."

"One of the findings is a rune stone, mentioned in the early 1600's but not pictured until now. It disappeared probably in the early 1800s and has been the tröskelsten in an older clogged up the entrance."

"It was very common to in the middle ages used the old stones as building materials," says Robin Lucas."

"Stone, which shall remain in the wall, have no comprehensible message."

"– The runes we can read the form, no context."

"A bargain is a fragment inside the church. It was discovered a new rune which is not observed before."

"– There is a misspelling in the original text, which someone has corrected. You had missed to write out the whole word he just wrote an h and an a, and above this it has been hacked into a n-rune, says Robin Lucas."

"In the Upland is almost half of Sweden's 2 800 runestones or runic. More than 500 of them are located in Uppsala county."

"The vast majority were erected during a relatively short period from the late 900's to the early 1100's. The rune stones were placed well visible in the landscape, often at the allfarvägar, fords or next to the burial ground."

"They served as memorials to a deceased relative, but also that arvsdokument because the relationship between the travelled stone and the deceased always stated."

"the Majority of the rune stones had crosses or other christian markers as prayers. It is therefore possible that they also served as missionsmonument during a period when the old nordic folklore gradually was replaced by christianity."
