Abstract

A runic inscription on a local lead spindle-whorl found near the coastal site of Saltfleetby in Lincolnshire provides exceptional evidence, not only of the maintainence of the Norse language and Norse runic writing traditions in the early 11th century there, but also a survival of the pre-Christian Norse religion.
