A secret code unsolved for 1200 years has finally been cracked — the mysterious inscription on famed Viking relic the Rök stone (or Rökstenen) reveals the warrior nation feared the return of the deadly ‘Late Antique Little Ice Age’ which wiped out more than HALF of Scandinavia — the stone speaks of an enduring battle against extreme cold weather in the sixth century.
According to a study led by Per Holmberg, a professor of Swedish language at the University of Gothenburg, the text is telling a tale of light and darkness, warmth and cold, and it expresses a deep fear of a coming climate disaster.
“The main theme is apparently the Sun, or the rhythm of light”, Holmberg explained.
Of the nine riddles contained on the stone, five of them have the answer “the Sun.”
The stone was erected in the late 800s near the lake Vattern in south central Sweden.
