The Storyverse – Episode One
There is a poem on a stone
Between Norway and Jämteland
written in a runic script …
An ancient song tells of a ‚Stone in the Green Valley‘ located on the Norwegian border. Its inscription, so the song relates, speaks of an old prophecy:
When this stone collapses, society as we know it will come to an end, affecting rich and poor alike.

The first drawing of the prophetic stone stems from an expedition Rudbeck sent to Jämtland in 1675. It was printed in the Atlantica four years later, next to tables of Phoenician and runic alphabets.
Rudbeck died before he published a reading of the stone he first depicted. Ever since, it has remained an enigma that inspired many interpretations: Writings in an unknown alphabet, a map, a milestone or signs by pilgrims – or simply random geological cracks.
In March 2022, we revisited the Stone in the Green Valley with a camera team to begin filming Episode One – the framing story for our Storyverse.
Let the journey into the world of the Atlantica begin!
