stone found near Sjellebro (now to be seen at the prehistoric museum Moesgård)
carries the inscription: "Toke smed rejste stenen efter Troels, Gudmunds søn,
som gav ham frelse". This inscription is unique as it tells us that the stone
was raised by a slave named "Toke", the son of Gudmund, who gave him his liberty.
It also tells us that "Toke" was a smith.
Normally monuments were raised by
people belonging to the so called upper class and not by liberated slaves and
Few runic stones can be found where they were raised many hundred
years ago. Most stones were moved and used when building churches and dikes.
