Hi,

i am looking for a good quality picture of an Ockelbo Runic Stone- the one with gamers. We are at the end of a new exhibit creation about Viking times (Truso). One of the author's idea is to make a large "board game" zone. And this runic stone suits us well to be a huge printed back at the start of this zone. 

So if anyone can help us, please send us this picture.... piotr.adamczyk@muzeum.elblag.pl 

Of course, you'll be written as the author :)

Did you see this web site? 

I've seen it, but its def. to small for a print unforunatelly. 

I've sent a request to Helen Simonsson at the National Heritage board, she's in charge of the Swedish Runic Stones. Let's see if she possibly has a Picture.

Dear Mr Adamczyk,

The runestone has the entry number Gs 19 in Gästriklands runinskrifter, a part of the corpus publication Sveriges runinskrifter. This runestone was destroyed in a church fire in 1904, but there are some 18th and 19th century drawings and also an early photo from 1887.

 

The best reproduction for your purpose is probably a photo by Harald Faith-Ell, based on the photo from 1887 where the carvings have been filled in according to other combined sources (se corpus publication Gästriklands runinskrifter p.195 here: http://www.raa.se/runinskrifter/sri_gastrikland_b15_d01_text_1.pdf).

 

This photo ought to be found in ATA, the Antiquarian-Topographical Archives in Stockholm (http://www.raa.se/hitta-information/arkiv-och-bibliotek/), I recommend that you contact ATA directly: ata@raa.se.

 

A copy was made in 1931, private photo by Christer Hamp here: http://www.christerhamp.se/runor/gamla/gs/gs19.html.

 

With kind regards,

Laila Kitzler Åhfeldt, Reader/Associate prof.
