Runriket - Gullbron


 Documents from the 17th centyrt attest that four standing stones were originally raised at Gullbron. Three of them have now been moved to other sites in the county and one has gone missing. The Gullbro inscriptions refer to the Lindö clan, an influential family north of Vallentunasjön in the 11th century. Two of the stones at Gullbron were raised by women, Astrid and Inga, which suggests that the position of women in Viking Age society was strong, at least among the ruling classes.
