Description

This short and readable book tells the story of the Runes, and explains each one with the help of a runic rhyme dating from the Viking Age. The old runic letters were much used in the Viking Age. Runes have been found from the Black Sea in the South, to Russia in the East, all over Europe and Scandinavia, and in Greenland. Wherever there were Vikings, there were runes. Runes on memorial stones, weapons, tools, calfskin, wax plates, wooden boards and pins. 

A Little Book about the Runes is a quick and charming guide to a fascinating world.
