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.

Whether helping pathologists to perform virtual autopsies, scrutinising a Martian meteorite or revealing the secrets of ancient mummies, computerised visualisation techniques through CT and MRI scans are opening up new worlds of understanding.

Anders Persson, Director of the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization, and Anders Ynnerman, founder of the Norrköping Visualization and Interaction Studio, showcase their world-leading research and techniques.
