Runes and Ambient Synth Music

This is a video made by Thomas Rowsell, showing the progression of the rock carving tradition in Sweden from 1800BC - 1100AD. Beginning with the rock carvings at Tanum, moving to the Järsberg runestone from the migration era, written in the elder futharc. Then the famous Sparlösa runestone with a runic curse carved by pagan Vikings, and finishing with three Roman Catholic rune stones from the conversion era.

The music is by Andrew Weis whose moody synth music is also used in the soundtrack for From Runes to Ruins
