Selaöns runinskrifter: en runstensgeografi

Abstract [en]

This is a study of a small runestone material from the Selaön Island in Lake Mälaren. As an island material, the inscriptions are set apart from their surroundings. They link in with common traits among decorated 11th runestones, but also with the characteristic breadth of middle-sized and well-defined materials. This local diversity may nevertheless be seen as a characteristic in itself of the larger Lake Mälaren area: this region is partly built from local nodes united by the lake. Based on the study three research fields are identified: 1) small-scale runestone geography and chronology, 2) the non-banal and complex relationship between design, text and ornament, 3) a dimension of intent characteristic of Selaön, that is, a local sincerity in the commemorative inscriptions. Micro-geography, complex design and mindset are thus suggested as new fields for a cognitively more rewarding contextual research into the runestone vogue in the Lake Mälaren area.
