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.

        Lettered with Rembrandt's signature and date, at top, in drypoint: "Rembrandt f.t 1635". Lettered below the oval: "Qúem pia mirari plebes, qúem castra solebant, / damnare et mores aula coacta súos. / Jactatús múltum, nec tantum fractús ab annis / WTENBOGARDUS sic túús, Haga, redit. / H. Grotius [The (worldly) court was forced to condemn the man so admired by the pious, the soldiers and the court itself, and denounce his convictions. The Hague, after much wandering your fellow townsman Uytenbogaert returns, withered, not by the years alone. Hugo de Groot.]".
