NOW.... I am not sure if you ever carved or chiseled your name on stone,
thus I am not sure if you can or can't relate to what I am about to say. Ok
I give it a try. Due to my grandfather's and his father's as well as
father-in-law's work as superiors in charge of two of Bohuslän's major
export-harbor's Stone Masons, father and his brothers learnt how to handle
right equipment for Stone Mason, 'cutting' 'splitting' 'finishing' from what
we call 'raw-stone'= stone after it's 'taken' from cliff, one way or an
other. One of the traditions among Stone Mason workers were to carve either
their names, symbols or .... in one case runes. I will return to the later
incident since that one is more than funny comparing with the KRS treatmeant
among scholars.... Anyhow I and my older cousins were taught to do this by
my grandfather and by one of my uncles who worked for the Stone Mason
company. Now my name hasn't always been 'Johansson' and there are dots above
letters in my name before I married.
If one looks at my name carved in granite the dot that originally were less
deep than the carved letters.(I and many other finds it difficult to do
regular dots) those dots today looks as if they were deeper than the carved
letters. They weren't originally. I am not sure but due to seeing water
being 'collected' in the dots I guess that the erosion might have made them
deeper. As I said, I am not sure but when it's freezing and water 'stands'
in a dot but runs of the carved parts - water always try to come as close to
ground as it can - that might cause the erosion.
The funny runescript. Well in 1941 one of grandfather's subordinate works
got angry on Hitler..... he carved 'dj.... Hitler' using old secret runes.
That would have been fine if someone in 1960's or 70's with no knowledge of
the background what so ever hadn't taken a photo of the runescipt and since
the name of the hill where it was carved was the same as one of the more
'wellknown' in Tanums parish, someone made a mistake and in a book, English
btw, written that the runescript was found on the other hill...... and that
none of the Runelogists been able to 'read' the runes but the carving 'must'
be from Viking Age......
