Wednesday, July 10: Rune Letters - Their History and a Modern Day Project with Janey Westin

  • Rune letterforms, used widely by northern people for centuries, went with the Norse wherever they traveled. They evolved and changed with the times, just as Roman letters did. In a way, they even ended up in present-day Manitoba, where many Icelandic Norse had migrated in the later 1800s.
