    Curiosity About Your Rune Stones

    Since so many runes dot the landscape of Sweden, and the other Nordic countries like Norway, Denmark, and Iceland, have there ever been any cases in which one of your runes have been desecrated by a group of vandals? Specifically, speaking, a group of immigrant vandals? Do teenagers like to frequent rune stones for whatever God only knows purposes? How do you protect your runes from such happenings? Can I just assume there is a law enacted to protect the preservation of your rune stones?

    It has happend a few times that they have been spraypainted. Luckily they are hard to destroy and the runestones can easily be restored. Also a lot of runestones are far away from civilization.

    You'd think you would want to protect runestones better, considering they are a good connection to the ancient history of our ancestors.

    A rune stone in Sweden was just used to block the way on a parking lot. Appereantly it wasnt discovered that it was a runestone until recently. There are also some old stories about rune stones being smashed up and used for building churches.

    Many rune stones are located on the country side, so people that go to see them would usually appriciate them. In Uppsala however, they have a few in to the centre of the town, at least one is located outside the Uppsala Cathedral. I don't think they are vandalised more than statues, ceremonial stones, grave stones etc, and most towns and cities have many of them.

    Remember that there are few rune stones in most of Scandinavia. Only eastern Sweden has plenty of them, usually Christian rune stones.
