name is Kalle Runristare.
Runristare means "rune stone carver", and that is what I do for a living. My family name is Kalle Dahlberg
|My life has always been surrounded by nature,
art and history. From that experience I got my basic education to carve this
In my daily life I like all kinds of food, my family, animals, nature and to be a viking re-enactor. To act as a viking re-enactor gives me a good insight and knowledge to the society thousand years ago and that is necessary if my runestones shall become real in public eyes, now and in the future.
|I live in an old red house at the south part of the island of Adelsö, near Birka, the viking trademark. I live here together with my Ellinor, her daughter Denice, our dog Frode, cats, sheeps, fowls and more.|
|In the World Heritage area, where the kings from
viking period are beried, is where I start my guided tours
"Historical Travellsa" as a viking from the past.
The picture displays me and my dog Frode. In the background is a painting of the original runestone at Hovgården. The runestone was carved in the year 1070
|I'm also working at home, my home is my
office and here I have the computer to make this WebPages and answer e-mails.
I paint, draw and carve my runestones here. I
often get surprised comments when people hear that I also work with computers. In
fact, it's a big difference, but they have something in common. You can create
with both of them, that's what I like.
But the runestones hard drive last much longer than the computers....
|Sol is my 19 year old daughter
She likes fast cars and thinks that my island is to far from civilization...!
But sometimes she coming to Adelsö.
