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.

    Rose-pink Vase


    The outside of this vase is covered with pink glazes which appears mottled. The base and inside has a transparent glaze. Rose pink was first used as a monochrome in the last years of the Kangxi reign about 1720. The shape of this vase suggests that it was made in the 19th century. It is particularly light, made from a type of porcelain which was much admired by collectors in Western Europe.

    Qing dynasty, about 1800–1900
