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.

An opportunity to see Two Spirits, a film directed by Lydia Nibley.

Fred Martinez was a male-bodied person with a feminine nature, a special gift according to his ancient Navajo culture.

However, Fred became one of the youngest hate-crime victims in modern history when he was brutally murdered at sixteen.

The film interweaves the tragic story of a mother’s loss of her son and explores the essentially spiritual nature of gender and sexuality.

Certificate exempt, 52 mins. 2005, directed by Lydia Nibley.
