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.

4. The Americans landing at Yokohama in 27 barges.
5. The funeral procession for crewmember Robert Williams who had recently died and a picture of his gravestone.
6. A lively banquet scene in which the five Japanese negotiators (with their backs to the viewer) entertain Perry and his officers to dinner. The five Japanese are (from the right):
