Shipwreck found with Viking sun stone An oblong crystal found in the wreck of a 16th-century English warship is a sunstone, a near-mythical navigational aid said to have been used by Viking mariners, researchers said on Wednesday.
The Sparlösa Runestone, Västergötland, Sweden This stone was found after a fire in a church in 1684, and promptly split in half for use in repairs to the church – people did not always realise the significance of these runestones. The two halves were removed and reunited in 1937. Much like the Rök runestone, the Sparlösa stone features both the younger and older Futhark runic alphabet. It also depicts images of a ship, various animals and birds, and two men.
