    The Eggja runestone was ploughed up in 1917 on the farm Eggja in Norway. The stone was found with the written side downwards over a man's grave, which is dated to 650-700 C.E. It contains the longest known inscription in the Elder Futhark, even though certain runes are transitional towards the Younger Futhark that followed. There are a few different translations of the runes, but what is agreed on is that they that contain a protection of the grave.

    The runes can be translated to:

    Not has the sun seen, nor the sword shorn, this stone
    Do not seek the man howling over the naked dead
    Misguided men shall not lay it aside
    VIl  threw a death wave over them
    The oarlocks wore out for, with the tired mast-top

    Who brought the horde here, to the land of the men?
    The god-fish from distant island streams
    Swimming with the screaming bird

    Protection against the wrong-doer
