The Tullstorp Runestone


The original site of the Tullstorp Runestone approx. 980 AD is unknown, the stone first ended up in the wall surrounding the church yard, broken in two it was later put back together and moved to its current position. The ship and the wolf in the image probably reflects the Ragnarok myth, which would make the wolf Fenrir and the ship Naglfar.

The Östra Vemmenhög/Dybäck stone is still standing where it was originally erected by bruþiR, at a ford/river crossing. Pretty amazing considering the 1000 or so years that have passed since.

Another rune stone with parts of my name on it, this one with my first name.
The other one, the Karlevi stone that stands on Öland, has parts of my last name.

The Karlevi stone, Öland Sweden approx. 985 AD. Standing where it was originally erected (probably) by danish vikings. It is thought that Sibbe den Gode took part in the legendary battle at Fýrisvellir, close to Ubsalum (now Uppsala, not far from Stockholm) and that he died from his wounds at sea close to Öland on the way home, his followers buried him in one of two now lost mounds and erected the stone between them in memory of their lord.

To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?”
