Gällsta runestones

Part of the Runriket
"In Gällsta, there are three rune stones that mention four generations of the same clan. There is a fourth stone as well, but it has no inscription, only a cross. One of the stones has been signed by Öpir, one of the most common rune carvers of the later 11th century. On another stone, you can clearly see the repair marks that were made after it had been cut in two in the 19th century to by used as gateposts at a nearby farm."
