"FosseWay" added on 13/12/2013:

"The runes are the runic alphabet in the traditional order (starting with FUTHARK, one of the names for the alphabet).
The 'Viking' ship and other items at the bottom are taken from hällristningar (rock carvings), most of which date from well before the Vikings. The most extensive and famous area of these in Sweden is between Tanum and Fjällbacka on the west coast, a couple of hours on the bus from me. More in English here; a selection of boats in particular has been collected on the Swedish WP page here.
I don't know what the line apparently beginning ZPEV is. I wondered whether it was a form of the Gothic alphabet, as Gothic was spoken for several centuries on Gotland and quite possibly elsewhere in eastern Sweden, but I can't relate all of the characters on the medal to actual glyphs in the alphabet, never mind get them to spell something sensible.
On the other side, I think the 'network' (i.e. right-hand quadrant) is actually stylised trees with a hill behind. ..."
