Most of the time, the "Period/Datering" information in Rundata just gives the date as "V", meaning "Viking Age", which is very broad. For some Danish inscriptions from Jacobsen & Moltke a more precise sub-period is given. The periods used are:
|V Helnæs-Gørlev||ca. 800 (or 750-ca. 900)|
|V för-Jelling||(pre-Jelling)||ca. 900|
|V Jelling||(Jelling)||10th c. and into the 11th c.|
|V efter-Jelling||(post-Jelling)||ca. 1000 – ca. 1050|
|V kristen efter-Jelling||(Christian, post-Jelling)||1st half 11th c.|
|Pr3||1050 - a generation forward (en generation framåt)|
I usually find names in Peterson's Nordiskt runnamnslexikon, then look them up in Rundata to get more info.
