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.

From raiding to full-scale invasion, the development of urban trade to involvement in destructive power struggles, the experience of the Viking Age in Britain and Ireland was varied across regions. This panel discussion, chaired by historian and writer Michael Wood, will consider these regional histories and how they have shaped the cultural memory of the Vikings across Britain and Ireland. Panellists include Stephen Harrison, Trinity College Dublin, Judith Jesch, University of Nottingham, James Moncrieff, Shetland Amenity Trust, and Marc Scully, University of Leicester.
