Carlsund's rune stone

Runic inscription:

  Lotta and Joachim and Therese and Richard, all Carlsund, let raised stone and build house on own land. Kalle carved

  Lotta o Joachim o Therese o Richard, alla Carlsund, lät resa sten o bygga hus på egen mark. Kalle rista

First contact was in 2001 when Joachim found a suitable rune stone in his own forest. The stone was transported to Adelsö and the work started early in spring 2002.

The family had two wishes, a sun cross of the same type as on the Vinland runestone and a Icelandic horse that "tölt" because thay like horses in general and have a stable with riding activities: Stadsberga Västergård.

During the work I received two media visits.
First, Bo Landin came to record a scene with several rune carver for his film: Örnens vingar, English: Viking Voyages: The Dragons Wings.

The next visit was from the National Heritage Board that filmed Viking Age crafts, in my case rune carving.
