The Hogganvik Inscription and Early Nordic Memorialisation

2016 (English)In: Futhark: International Journal of Runic Studies, ISSN 1892-0950, E-ISSN 1892-0950, Vol. 7, p. 7-28Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In 2009 an early runic inscription was discovered on a triangular projecting area that through subsequent excavation was confirmed to be at the lower part of a funerary monument. Yet such find reports and commentaries as have appeared to date have tended not to assess the Hogganvik inscription prin­ci­pally as a commemorative expression, as an example of a broader memo­rial epigraphic tradition. Rather than as an epigraphic record of the history of emotions, suggestions of magic appear in the main treatments of the remark­able find. After all, lexically irregular sequences found on other early runic memo­rials are often taken as signs they feature a magical aspect. Taking the Hoggan­vik inscription in its broader linguistic and archaeological context, how­ever, suggests a rather different understanding is to be assumed for the early Norwegian memorial. Instead of reflecting magic, the less clear sections of the Hoggan­vik text can more regularly be understood as abbreviated or other­wise obscurely expressed sequences.
