Jun 6, 2021

A large runestone found when a road was constructed near the Arlanda airport to the north of Stockholm in the year 1990.

It now stands inside Terminal 2 for domestic flights at the airport. When it was found, two pieces were missing, but a later archaeological excavation found them and the runestone was mended.
