Viking Elder Futhark Runes Set in Bag
This set includes the 24 Elder Futhark runes plus Odin's rune (the blank one) and a faux burlap drawstring bag printed with the Viking Compass, or Vegvisir.
The runes are wood and the drawstring bag is durable polyester and made to last.
This set is based on the mystic runes stones and their meaning.
Designed to be inscribed first into wood and metal, during the Viking Age large amounts of inscribed runestones were erected predominantly throughout Scandinavia.
Runestones, despite being tough to decipher, are of absolutely critical value to us, as they are the only written source contemporary to this period.
Runes are letters in the runic alphabets of Germanic-speaking peoples, written and read most prominently from at least c. 160 CE onwards in Scandinavia in the Elder Futhark script (until c. 700 CE) and the Younger Futhark - which illuminated the Viking Age (c. 790-1100 CE).
