Day 4 - South of lake Mälaren

Sö 279 - Strängnäs

Jun 20, 2021

The runestone fragment Sö 279 is not used as part of the wall of Strängnäs cathedral, but stands freely close to the main entrance.

It mentions the sons of Amund, and something happened to the south in Serkland. This could possibly be about Ingvar himself, and his brother Harald.

The original position of this runestone is not known.
