Abstract [sv]

It is shown that the fragmented rune-stone U 707 at Kungs-Husby church in Uppland and a rune-stone fragment from Kungs-Husby village (U 710) are parts of the same stone, making possible an almost complete reconstruction of the original text. It can be demonstrated that the man commemorated was called Kaupmaðr – a name previously unrecorded in Viking-Age runic inscriptions – and that he probably lived in Husby, i.e. the same place where the rune-stone is still to be found.
