Before literacy was wide spread, the use of house marks was common, resembling runes these marks were often used on houses. These were found on one of the pillars inside a medieval pigrimage church in Scania, near the church is a sacred spring believed to be from the pre-christian, pagan time – thus this has been a site of religious importance for a very long time.
The runic inscription reads “Eyndr reisti stein þenna eptir Auða, bróður sinn, hann varð dauðr á Gotlandi. Guð hjalpi hans sálu” or “Önd raised this stone after Önde, his brother, who found death on Gotland, God help his soul”
Today I made a local mini-expedition – aiming to get a few photos for this blog. Here are the results:
I read today that there are about 150 remaining Windmills in Scania , here are two of them; (in addition to the three I shot a while ago).
Also I paid a visit to Tullstorp , where this 11th century runestone is located, the inscription reads: “Kleppir/Glippir ok Ása reistu kuml þessi eptir Ulf” (Kleppir/Glippir and Ása raised this monument in memory of Ulfr.)
