Evidence of extreme climate change were found on the ancient runes of the Vikings

an Ancient rune stone can tell about climate changes in the distant past

An Ancient rune stone can shed light on climate change that took place long before the climatic events of the XXI century. To this unexpected conclusion came experts studying the crisis of the cold climate of Scandinavia in the sixth century of our era. The stone, which was raised in the ninth century of lake vättern in South-Central Sweden, is the carrier of the longest runic inscriptions in the world with more than 700 runes that cover all 5 sides of the unusual finds.

has there Been any climate changes in the past?

The Problem of modern climate change is one of the major challenges of our century. However, according to an article published on the portal , such events could occur earlier. Proof of this can be found a stone that was erected as a monument to the dead son of one of the rulers of the Ostrogoths, who lived on the territory of modern Italy. Researchers believe that the events in the stone describe a period of very extreme winter, which, according to the author of the runic stone was like the winter of 536 BC

It is believed that the crisis of the sixth century was caused by a chain of volcanic eruptions, which strongly influenced the climate, giving rise to lower average temperatures, lower yields, hunger and mass extinction of cattle. As a result of these developments, the population of the Scandinavian Peninsula have declined by at least 50 percent, and the memory of the incident was transmitted by inheritance, affecting the mythology of the Northern peoples.

Runic pattern on the stone tells of battles with a total length of more than a hundred years.

Bo Graslund, Professor of archaeology at Uppsala University, believes that in addition to the cold winters and bloody wars, rune drawing describes a powerful solar storm, an extremely cold summer and even a solar Eclipse, in which the sky was painted in dramatic shades of red.

Anyway, because of global cooling it's global warming. According to research, the peak of the warming during this period occurred in the XI-X century BC, when in Iceland, on the coast of the Baltic sea and even in England, began to grow grapes and other warm-weather crops. In addition, discovered in the tenth century Greenland could get its name not just. Most likely, the largest island of the planet one day really almost completely covered with greenery. In proof of this incredible fact, scientists report extant outbuildings and household items of the Vikings of that time period. In this case, perhaps, climate change is not connected with human activity and are cyclical in nature? Let's try to discuss this question together in our .
