Product Description

Futhartk Runes In popular culture, Runes have always been seen as possessing of mystical properties. As runes dated from before the time Northern Europe became Christianized, it became associated with the “pagan” or non-Christian past, and hence a mystique is cast upon it. Even the supposed etymology of the word rune, the German word raunen which means “to whisper”, helped in adding a secretive bend to Runes. The Runic alphabet is also known as Futhark, a name composed from the first six letters of the alphabet, namely f, u, th, a, r, and k. In this way, “Futhark” is analogous to the word “alphabet”, which is from alpha and beta, the first two letters of the Greek alphabet. And why were the letters ordered in such a way. Nobody knows the answer, but it might been some form of mneumonic function that was not preserved. The first Runic inscriptions that have survived to the modern day dated from around 200 CE. The alphabet consists of 24 letters, 18 consonants and 6 vowels
