Archaeologists in Norway have uncovered what they believe is the world's oldest runestone.

The sandstone block contains inscriptions dating back 2,000 years - the earliest known stone writing ever found in Scandinavia.

It's inscribed with the word 'Idiberug' - which could be the name of a person or family.

The runestone will be put on display at the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo this weekend.
