What just happened?

To celebrate Vikings Live, we have replaced our Roman alphabet with the runic alphabet used by the Vikings, the Scandinavian ‘Younger Futhark’. The ‘Younger Futhark’ has only 16 letters, so we have used some of the runic letters more than once or combined two runes for one Roman letter.

For an excellent introduction to runes, we recommend Martin Findell’s book published by British Museum Press.

National Programmes
Conference and Seminars

Over the last five years the British Museum has held an annual conference focused on partnerships in the museum sector.

The British Museum regularly hosts lectures, seminars and conferences, but National Programmes is sector facing, with a focus of working across the UK.

The annual conference is designed to be a networking opportunity and a chance to inspire new partnership activity. We want to make sure that the conference is relevant and useful to the museum representatives that attend.  

We are open to ideas and suggestions for the annual conference, for more information contact Katy Swift kswift@britishmuseum.org
