This print features all 21 Younger Futhark Runes — the runes used by the Scandinavian Vikings during the Viking Age — displayed in the traditional three rows, also known as “ætts.” Each rune is showcased with its corresponding name and the meaning of the name.
As each rune is a letter in the Old Norse alphabet, they all represent a sound similar to the Roman/Latin letters we use in the Western world today. However, they also carried names that can sometimes be construed as a separate meaning associated with the rune, which runologists such as Victoria Symons dive deeper into.
Having a print like this up on your wall is a perfect way to immerse yourself in the Norse culture as you explore the symbolism and significance behind each rune’s name on a daily basis — before long you and your close ones will figure out how to write your names in runes!
I’ve made this print with the utmost attention to detail, and include only scientifically well-known and historically accurate descriptions of each rune. More information can be found in this article: https://nordicperspective.com/history/vikings/nordic-symbols-norse-runes
