    What steps are being taken to protect these steles, rune stones, etc., in Sweden? Many countries have had problems with vandalism at ancient sites. Part of me says to leave them in situ, as they were intended, and part of me would like to see them housed in some way in order to protect them.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Rune stones, picture stones and other ancient monuments in Sweden are protected by law (actually since 1666). Authorities, institutions, non-profit local organizations as well as dedicated individuals are involved in preserving the Swedish heritage. The County Administrative Boards are responsible for supervising in each county, but Swedes are generally very aware of their local heritage and help to keep an eye on sites and monuments. Large threats to Swedish ancient sites are pillage in some areas, and damages caused by forestry work. Vandalism of rune stones is very unusual, and most of them are still standing out in the country, since about 1000 years. /Anna B.
