The Sjellebro Stone

The carvings of the stone are in the Ringerike style and contemporary with the runestone styles B-e-v (c. 1010-1050), Pr 1 (c. 1010-1040) and Pr 2 (c. 1020-1050).

The inscription is not signed.

The granite stone is c. 1,70 m tall and 1,00 m wide.

 

Notes

The stone was discovered in 1951 lying face down on the meadow by the stream Alling Å. Following excavations revealed that it was raised by a wooden bridge dating to c. 1000 connecting a road crossing the stream leading to a large settlement.
