Copy of rune stone from Uppland, Täby, Broby. 3D Model
The rune stone was raised by Estrid and her three sons in memory of the husband and father Östen. The text tells that he went on a long journey to Jerusalem but died in Greece. The Scandinavian word for Jerusalem was “Jorsalir”. The tradition to raise rune stones can mainly be dated to the 11th century by the end of the Viking period. By that time Christianity had taken root in parts of Scandinavia. This copy was made by the stone conservator Paterick Stocklassa in 2001-2002. The original is still standing at Broby in Täby. The copy will be exhibited in Seattle, USA in the spring of 2018.
