Sverigeleden Part… I Forget! » 09-12t Upplands Rune Stone #846

Upplands Runestone #846

Rune translation, “Jovurfast, (missing)fast, Vigune, they allowed to be raised these runs after their father, Åse, Kättilbjörn, Ger, after their father-in-law, (missing) after their husbands.

The stone’s original place is not known, but in the 1600’s it lay as at the threshhold outside the vapenhuset of the Västeråker kyrka. Apparently the ornamentation of the stone is different and it is believed that the stone was never meant as an upright stone, but to be laid flat. The second name is damaged but is most probably a woman names. It was three sisters together with their husbands and mother who comissioned the stone.
