Geocache Description:


Svenska English
Runstenar är de äldsta skriftliga källor som finns i Sverige och restes ofta som minne efter någon familjemedlem som dött. En del runstenar står fortfarande kvar på sina ursprungliga platser medan andra flyttats eller rent av använts som byggnadsmaterial. Man kan exempelvis se åtskilliga runstenar inmurade i kyrkväggar. Rökstenen är den längsta runinskrift som finns bevarad i världen. Rune stones are the oldest written sources that exist in Sweden and were often raised in memory of a family member who had died. Some rune stones are still standing at the original locations while others have been moved or even been used as building materials. One can, for instance, see several rune stones that have been used as part of church walls. The Rök rune stone has the longest preserved rune inscription in the world.
Runstenarna restes för att kunna lämna ett vittnesmål till framtiden om något som bedömdes som viktigt. Med tanke på att runstenarna stått i omkring 1000 år och fortfarande är fullt läsbara för den som bara kan läsa runor så tycker jag att det får sägas vara en lyckad metod. Kommer våra bloggar och facebookinlägg att kunna läsas om 1000 år? The rune stones were raised to leave a message to the future about something that was considered to be important. Since the rune stones have been standing for about 1000 years are still are fully legible to those who can read runes I think we can say that it was a successful method. Will our blogs and facebook posts still be readable in 1000 years?
För att logga den här cachen behöver du skicka ett eget viktigt meddelande till framtiden. Ta ett foto som visar dig själv (ansiktet behöver inte synas om du inte vill), ditt meddelande och Rökstenen och posta fotot i din logg. Jag tycker om språk, så posta gärna ditt meddelande på ditt eget språk (eller flera språk!). To log this cache you need to send your own important message to the future. Take a photo that shows yourself (your face does not need to be visible if you don't want it to be), your message and the Rök rune stone and post the photo in your log. I like languages, so please post your message in your own language (or several languages!).
Lycka till!
Good luck!
Viel Glück!
Bonne chance!
