Runriket - Täby kyrka


Before Täby kyrka was built, this may well have been the site of Jarlabanke’s farmstead. Two pieces of runestone have been set in the porch wall. The stones  were inscribed in the 11th century and recount the story of Holme, who perished in what is now Italy.

Holme was probably one of the many Scandinavians who enlistedin the Byzantine emperor’s army.
