Overview

Runes and their Secrets is a collection of articles, mainly in English, dealing with a wide range of runological topics, all the works of recognised scholars. The articles originated as papers read at an international runic symposium that was held in the year 2000. Runes and their Secrets embraces Danish/Scandinavian runic inscriptions as well as runic inscriptions from other parts of the Germanic world from the first to the sixteenth century, that is before and after the conversion to Christianity. It includes such topics as the names of the runes, their chronology, literacy, runic coins etc. Furthermore, it presents articles on the oldest runic research and runic magic. Several of the articles present new knowledge, for example about runic encryption of military and erotic secrets from the middle of the sixteenth century.
