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.

    Korean celadon dish


    Korean potters supplying the Goryeo court with high quality ceramics in the twelfth century made close copies of Ru wares. Both Korean celadons (see Gallery 94) and Chinese Ru wares have chemically similar glazes, suggesting an early international exchange of technology.
