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.

Recommend this event

Enjoy a monster weekend of outdoor screenings at the Museum, featuring three classic 1950s British films.

The hunt is on for the greatest vampire of them all when Jonathan Harker’s quest to slay him leads Dracula to seek his lustful revenge.

Hammer Studios’ definitive adaptation of the Bram Stoker story, directed by Terence Fisher, stars Christopher Lee as the enigmatic Count, opposite Peter Cushing as his archnemesis Dr Van Helsing.
