This stone is perhaps the oldest Viking rune stone found in Södermanland. The vertical rune lines and the lack of ornamentation tells that this is an early inscription. The stone is from the second half of the 900s. The rune stone was actually found inside a burial mound in 1856. It has probably been placed on the top of the grave in the beginning, but over the passing 800 years since it was raised, it seems to slowly have been sunken into the ground and hidden by the growing grass.
