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.

They learn about the techniques that Museum scientists use to investigate ancient objects and uncover their hidden surprises. Students then create a multimedia presentation that is sent back to school to continue your learning in the classroom and share with others.
