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.

Ancient Egyptian curses and the awakened dead were popular subjects for film, even before the sensational discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922.

Hammer breathed new life into the story, casting Christopher Lee as Kharis, vengeful guardian of the tomb of Princess Ananka, once again opposite Peter Cushing.
