Fascinating news from Norway: Archeologist say they have found the oldest known runestone!
Found during the excavation of a grave in Tyrifjorden, west of Oslo, the stone has several inscriptions. Not all make linguistic sense but one on the front reads ”idiberug”, which could be the name of a person or family.
The archaeologists estimate the runes to have been inscribed between AD 1 and 250, which would make them the world’s oldest known carved on stone. Older rune inscriptions have been found before, but not on stone. The world’s oldest known runes were found on a bone comb i Denmark.
