Hogback de Ovingham 1C, Northumberland, Inglaterra, 900-950 d.C.
This stone is perhaps the oldest Viking rune stone found in Södermanland. The vertical rune lines and the lack of ornamentation tells that this is an early inscription. The stone is from the second half of the 900s. The rune stone was actually found inside a burial mound in 1856. It has probably been placed on the top of the grave in the beginning, but over the passing 800 years since it was raised, it seems to slowly have been sunken into the ground and hidden by the growing grass.
Brompton Church, North Yorks; Viking Hogback Graves; 10th to 12th century Anglo-Scandinavian Beautiful clear images of these 'Berseckers' graves. The bears at either end allude to the Viking habit of going mad in battle some put it down to the amanita muscaria, that lovely red mushroom, with white spots, of course a halluncinogen. Or maybe the wearing of bearskins
