Två blir en: Om Grällstastenarna i Kila (Vs 27 och Vs 28) och något om vikingatidens brobyggande

Abstract [en]

In Västmanlands runinskrifter (1964) two runestones are registered at the hamlet Grällsta in Kila parish in Västmanland (Vs 27 and Vs 28). The first one is still preserved, while the latter — a fragment — is now lost but was recorded in earlier sources. In 1983 Jan Paul Strid discovered some deeply cut lines near the top of the preserved runestone that fitted with the rune-band on the early drawings of the lost fragment. He therefore suggested that the fragment must originally have constituted the top of the preserved stone, just as it is depicted in Bautil. His observation is obviously correct, and as shown in this article, there are in addition remains of a few runes from the text of the small fragment near the top of the stone. The runic remnants facilitate the reconstruction of the last word of the inscription, which is most probably the comparative rȳmRi ‘broader’, referring to improvements made to the bridge mentioned in the inscription.
