Gravhällsfragmentet från Tornby i Fornåsa i Östergötland och utvecklingen av några medeltida runformer
2015 (Swedish)In: Futhark: International Journal of Runic Studies, ISSN 1892-0950, E-ISSN 1892-0950, Vol. 6, 107-142 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article deals with a fragment of a rune-inscribed grave-slab which was observed in 1980 at Tornby farm in Fornåsa parish, Östergötland. The frag­ment was subsequently moved to the county museum in Linköping, but it was never properly published. As shown in the article, the short inscription con­tains some very rare runic characters that make a valuable contribution to our knowledge of the development of medieval runes. It is also argued here that the fragment from Tornby originally belonged to the same stone as the more familiar grave-slab Ög 35 from Fornåsa church.
