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.

    Large vessel is in good condition. There are two large cracks (vertically occurred) on the rim.

    The cracks were first packed with HMG Paraloid B72 (methyl ethyl methacrlylate) and tightly joined together. Then the mixture of glass microballoons (silica or phenolic resin) and 30% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone) was used to fill the crack.
