Day 6 - Västerås

Vs 19 - Tillinge

Jul 11, 2021

The runestone Vs 19 is carved by the same runemaster who carved Vs 18 next to it.

The name Gunnald is a combination of the words for war and ruler. The name “Orm” just means snake.

Gunnald is mentioned on the runestone Vs 18, about a trip to England in the west, standing nearby. Both stones were moved here in the beginning of 1920s.

“Gunnald had this stone raised in memory of Orm, his stepson, a good valiant man. And (he) travelled to the east with Ingvar. May God help his soul.”
