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.

The Research Publications series

Recent publications


About the series

This series was launched to make research and information on the Museum’s collection as widely available as possible.

Originally called Occasional Papers, the series has been published since 1978. Between six and eight titles are published each year, and all are peer reviewed both within the Museum and by an independent external authority. All are available in hard copy, and some online.
