Runriket - Broby bro

Vallentuna

One of the runestones in the area around Broby bro was raised by the Viking Age woman Estrid, Jarlabanke’s grandmother, in memory of her husband, Östen, who perished in Greece. It is the only preserved runic inscription in Sweden that refers to the pilgrimages to Jerusalem. It was during excavations at Broby bro that Estrid’s grave was discovered.
