Lakewd1 lady aurelie - Version 2Runes: the Elder Futhark

Two part:

Elder/Anglo-Saxon/Frisian Futharks   and

Younger Futhark

The Elder Futhark and Anglo-Saxon futhark. From the origin(s) of runes to the early Viking period, these characters have not only been used for mundane purposes (business correspondance and shipping labels, indicating ownership of jewelry etc.) but also for magic. We will explore both angles in this class, as well as the origins and meanings of the individual runes themselves. The Anglo-Saxon/Frisian runes were primarily derived from the Scandinavian-Continental Germanic Elder Futhark. These have the earliest documented rune names, and perhaps the widest variety in rune numbers and forms. We will also explore St. Boniface’s Letters and other early rune codes.
