The Häggeby stone

When we started Co-Action Publishing in 2007 our main office was located in the small village of Häggeby, 50 km from Stockholm and some 30 km from Arlanda Airport and Uppsala. In front of the village church, dating back to the 13th century, stands a replica of a picture stone with beautiful and very well kept pictures carved on each side. The original, a rare archaeological find, is placed in the Historical Museum in Stockholm. The stone was found close to the church and is probably from the late Iron Age. Other finds in the vicinity suggest that there was an early settlement in and around today’s village.

One side of the stone depicts a fight between two stallions (shown several times in Fellini’s Satyricon), and the other the grand-scale rowing boat that embellishes our website.
