Rune stones in Kronobergs County

Now available for those who are interested in rune stones is a folder regarding the ca 150 rune inscriptions that are spread out over Kronobergs County, “Runor Runes Runen”. The folder is printed in English, German and Swedish and can be ordered from the County administrative board of Kronoberg, the folder is free of charge within Sweden and I think its free of charge otherwise aswell (but I can’t promise) it is also available on the tourist bureaus around the county.

Fill in the form, if you want one for free!

First fields: Antal = quantity, Name, e-mail, address etc (I think you understand)

In the last field called “meddelande” (message) fill in the name of the folder “Runor Runes Runen”, if you are from outside Sweden you can add a question if its free for you as well.

This folder contains some nice pictures and information concerning ten rune stones, some information in general regarding the runic inscriptions in the county and a map, see pictures below.



On another note, read about the exciting find of one of the biggest Iron Age roundhouses ever has been found in Scotland near Inverurie in Aberdeenshire on the blog Antiquarian’s Attic.
