The Rune Stone Diaries

About the blog

This is an extension of my Runes'n'ruins-site. Here I will tell you a bit more about the rune stones and also give you their exact locations as .kmz-files, which you can open with Google Earth on your computer, pad or phone. I hope that you'll find it easy to navigate through. Enjoy!

Rune stones carved by Öpir

This post is a continuation of the previous one, but it won't be very long. Last time (which is just a few minutes ago) I found all the inscriptions that Öpir or Œpir had carved. I copied them from Samnordisk Runtextdatabas and then pasted them into a text document, and below you can see the result in the attached file. Oh, and when there is a cross after the U+number - that means that the rune stone is now lost, but the text (and often also the design) was recorded some time before it was lost or destroyed. Even if the part of the stone where Œpirs name would have been (if the stone is partly damaged) is gone, his way of designing them where so individual, that the runologists are sure he was the one who carved it.
