Runestone (U 1011) originally from Örby in Rasbo parish, Uppland, The Rune stone was moved to Uppsala in the 17th century. The inscription says: "Vigmund had the stone cut in memory of himself, the most skillfull of men. May God help Vigmund the captain's sole. - Vigmund and Åfrid cut the memorial while he was alive". The building is the Orangery in the Linnaeus Garden, then hosting Uppsala University's Museum for Northern Antiquities.

    Runstenen står idag i Universitetsparken i Uppsala. Den var också på villovägar ett tag. Läs mer om det på Wikipedia: sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upplands_runinskrifter_1011 The rune stone is today placed in the University Park in Uppsala. The stone was also exhibited at the Paris World Exhibition in 1867, but was by accident dropped in the water at Le Havre at the transport back. After some decades in the water it was finally salvaged and returned to Uppsala. /Anna B.
