Day 8 - North of Sweden

M 4 - Attmar

Jul 13, 2021

This is the northernmost runestone that may be about the trip to Serkland by Ingvar.

It stands outside the church in Attmar, to the west of the town Sundsvall. It was found in 1810, and the designation is M 4.

Since it’s only a fragment, parts of the inscription is missing.
