A rune stone is typically a raised stone with a runic inscription, but the term can also be applied to inscriptions on boulders and on bedrock. The tradition began in the 4th century, and it lasted into the 12th century, but most of the rune stones date from the late Viking Age. Most rune stones are located in Scandinavia, but there are also scattered rune stones in locations that were visited by Norsemen during the Viking Age. Rune stones are often memorials to deceased men. Rune stones were usually brightly coloured when erected, though this is no longer evident as the colour has worn off.
Rune Stones are a set of 24 ancient alphabetic symbols, which are believed to have originated from the Northern parts of Europe sometime during the Palaeolithic times.
As well as being alphabetic in nature, they are regarded by many as a symbology which is far more powerful in communication than the mortal words that we use today. There is an apparent link between the power of the mind, as well as other magical properties, which are represented by the symbology contained within each symbolic letter.
