Fällbro runestones

Part of the Runriket.
"The two runic rock carvings south of the creek show that todays road coincides largely with the ancient route, which during the Iron Age ran to the west of the Vallentuna lake. At that time, the road went between these two runic carvings.
100 metres northwards on the eastern side of the road, there is a runic stone which, like the two runic rocks, tells about the bridge-builders of the Viking Age. The watercourse which then crossed the route was considerably larger than the brook which we see today."
