Well made and detailed
The runestones in the park are so well made and
detailed that they can be used for both research
and studies. A visit to the Runestone park is an
experience that makes you look at rune stones
with completely new eyes.
A Nordic art tradition
Runestones have a unique Nordic form where dragons,
snakes and other images together with runes creates a
lasting work of art that carries greetings from the
Viking Age to the present, and in case with newly made
runestones, also to the future.
runestone U6 from Birka was broken a long time ago.
Several fragments have been found and are displayed at
the museum in Birka.
In the Runestone park, the fragments have been put
together, given new colors and once again erected. Here
you can now see what the runestone once looked like.
