To further his research on the Kensington Runestone, Nielsen recently initiated a 3D imaging project of the stone using state of the art technology. Evaluation of the results is ongoing with Professor Williams. • Professor Henrik Williams holds the professorship in Scandinavian Languages at Uppsala University. He is primarily a philologist, teaching and doing research in Runology, Old Swedish and Old Icelandic, but he is also interested in names, both on persons and on places. He has published a book on the language on Swedish runestones from the Viking age, an edition of the Old Swedish romance, Haerra Ivan, and major articles on the conversion of Sweden to Christianity.
