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.

    During the early 1970s the Asahi Newspaper produced a series of politically charged photographic reportages on Okinawa, the atomic bomb and its after-effects, pollution, unemployment, and other concerns. All of them were produced by a single staff photographer with a particular interest in the subject. Kurihara (born 1937) won the Japan Photographic Society Newcomer's prize in 1962. Okinawa had been designated as 'a keystone of the Pacific' and the 118 military bases on the island left little room to doubt American commitment. Only two copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
