Arlanda runestone

Trying to find my way out of Arlanda Airport upon return from my travels over the holidays I found theres a rune stone on display in terminal 5 - it was found, if I remember correctly, during the building of the road from Stockholm to the airport and moved to its current place of display.

"Gunnarr and Bjôrn and Þorgrímr raised this stone in memory of Þorsteinn, their brother, who was dead in the east with Ingvarr, and made this bridge."
