Risbyle runestones

Part of the Runriket...there are two runestones at Risbyle.
"The two runic stones here at Risbyle were raised att the beginning of the 11th centure and they are among Upplands oldest. Here we meet the Skålhamra family, one of the powerful dynastics which lived in the district around lake Vallentuna during the Viking Age. The test on the stone nearest the Skålhamra road mentions Ulvkättil, Gye and Une who 'had this stone raise after Ulv their good father. He lived in Skålhamra'."
