Frands Herschend, Mellan tal och skrift. Essäer om runinskrifter.

This book in Swedish was produced within the Swedish Research Council project Den yngre järnålderns mentalitetshistoria  (Late Iron Age South Scandinavia - a Historical Anthropology). It centres on a discussion of three runic inscriptions; the one on the slab from Eggja in Sogndal, Norway, the one on the oath ring from Forsa in Hälsingland and the one on the bridge stone from Eggeby in Uppland (Inscription U69 in Sveriges runinscrifter). The metrical qualities of these, primarily oral expressions are a recurring aspect of the discussion.

Keywords: Eggja, Forsa, bridge stones, Eggeby, verse-form, metre.
