A runestone (U124) in Karlberg, Stockholm
I went to see this runestone, U124 that is located in Karlberg, Stockholm. Actually, it is located in the park of Karlberg Palace.
So, first I went to see Karlberg palace. It is a very beautiful building which is located in front of the water. The area is very quiet and I saw many people were enjoying their free time near the water chatting with their friends. I also saw many boats in the water. It seems that it is a nice area to live in. 😀
It was a bit difficult to find this runestone. But, the runedata, which is provided by Uppsala University helped me to find the location. 😄👍

Old West Norse
Ǫnundr ok Þorgísl þeir létu reisa stein eptir Ásgaut.
Anundr ok Þorgisl þæiʀ letu ræisa stæin æftiʀ Asgaut.
Ǫnundr and Þorgísl, they had the stone raised in memory of Ásgautr.
It is very cool that this runestone was raised in the Viking age when is almost 1000 years ago. There is a cross on the stone so that I believe this runestone was made after Christianity was introduced in this region. I hope to visit more runestones while I stay in Scandinavia. It is fun to learn the history of Scandinavia and rune language 😉🙌
An oak tree of Charles XII of Sweden
Also, there is a trunk of an oak tree that died for a long time, unfortunately. It seems that the oak tree was planted the time Charles XII of Sweden was on the throne.
