Så sakta så sakta växer den fram... Efter många långa timmar i vävstolen hoppas jag nu bara att jag känner mig nöjd när det är dags att klippa ner. 40 cm kvar, sen får vi veta 😊 #tex#textilverk #konsthantverk #textil #väv #vävning #matta #trasmatta #öland #gårdby

Gårdbystenen. Ölands runinskrift 28. (Öl 28) - The Gårdby Stone stands in the cemetery of Gårdby Church just by the southern side of the path going to the eastern door, southeast of the choir. It stood in the same location when Carl von Linné visited 1741, but it is believed to have stood raised at the family's farm somewhere in Gårdby parish and sometime before Linné's visit moved to the cemetery. It dates to 1020-1050CE during the Viking Age. The word "karþum" was originally believed to name the place where it stood, "Gårdby" but now this is known to be wrong. Instead it means "Garðum" or "Gårdarike" a kingdom made by Scandinavian settlers in Russia. This place name is mentioned on many rune stones accross Scandinavia. The seemingly unimportant mention of his brother Halvboren's place of residence may hold the puropose of documenting inheritance. The law written down in the "Westrogothic Law" stated "no man's inheritance can he who sits in Greece take", meaning no man who has moved out of the kingdom has right to inherit in it while they live abroad. This rule may apply here. The stone, made of limestone is 1.5m high, 1.3m wide and 10cm thick. The rune-master is named Brand. In the cemetery is also a rune stone fragment (Öl 29) that lacks text but I didn't know it was there when I visited! 😱 - ᚼ ᛅ ᚱ ᚦ ᚱ ᚢ ᚦ ᚱ ᛭ ᚱ ᛅ ᛁ ᛋ ᛏ ᛁ ᛭ ᛋ ᛏ ᛅ ᛁ ᚾ ᛭ ᚦ ᛁ ᚾ ᛋ ᛅ ᛭ ᛅ ᛁ ᚠ ᛏ ᛁ ᛦ ᛭ ᛋ ᚢ ᚾ ᛭ ᛋ ᛁ ᚾ ᛭ ᛋ ᛘ ᛁ ᚦ ᛭ ᛏ ᚱ ᛅ ᚴ ᛭ ᚴ ᚢ ᚦ ᛅ ᚾ ᛭ ᚼ ᛅ ᛚ ᚠ ᛒ ᚢ ᚱ ᛁ ᚾ ᛭ ᛒ ᚱ ᚢ ᚦ ᛁ ᛦ ᛅ ᚾ ᛋ ᛭ ᛋ ᛁ ᛏ ᚱ ᛭ ᚴ ᛅ ᚱ ᚦ ᚢ ᛘ ᛒ ᚱ ᛅ ᚾ ᛏ ᚱ ᛭ ᚱ ᛁ ᛏ - × ᛁ ᛅ ᚴ ᚦ ᚢ ᚱ ᛅ ᚦ ᛅ ᛭ ᚴ ᚼ ᚾ - harþruþr + raisti + stain + þinsa + aiftiR + sun + sin + s(m)iþ + trak + kuþan + halfburin + bruþiR ans + sitr + karþum brantr + rit- × iak þu raþa + khn - Hærþruðr ræisti stæin þennsa æftiR sun sinn Smið, dræng goðan.

Brand cut rightly, therefore (one) can interpret (the runes)."

Kycklinghögen. (Gårdby 38:1) - "The Chicken Mound" is a burial mound sitting on a field by the road just outside the northern part of the village of Gårdby. I have no idea why it got its strange name but it would be interesting to find out, maybe somebody knows? There is another grave on Öland called Kycklinghögen on the alvaret near Klinta and Stora Smedby. Strangely it is not a hög (burial mound) at all but a large circular stone-setting. Anyways, this mound is 18 meters in diameter and 1.9 meters high. At the middle is a pit 5m in diameter and 0.6m deep. The northeastern end of the mound has been leveled by plowing and farmers have placed many stones on it when they cleared the fields. Sadly, I haven't found any interesting stories to tell about this one and as far as I know it has never been excavated but it probably dates to the Late Iron Age (375-1042CE). I could be wrong, some large burial mounds were made in the Bronze Age, like Risinge hög in one of my earlier posts. - In the near vicinity of the mound there are 6 foundations of houses from the Iron Age, stone strings, burial cairns and two other large burial mounds. One of the burial cairns, called Grå rör (Gray Cairn) is 30 meters in diameter and 1 meter high. In older days it was mistaken as a prehistoric fort (fornborg) and villagers called it "Gårdby borg". The rune stone known as "Gårdbystenen" in my last post is not far away in the cemetery of the church. The first stone church in Gårdby was built in the 1100's but there was an earlier wooden church at the same location. - #kycklinghögen #gårdby #öland #sverige #sweden #scandinavia #skandinavien #norden #history #historia #gravhög #burialmound #tumulus #sverigeshistoria #fornlämning #fornminne #forntid #prehistory #anc#ancientment #ölandroots #swedenimages #viking #vikings #ironage #järnålder #archaeology #arkeologi #svenskhistoria #ancient #bronzeage
