There are many theories on the origins, age, and use of the Runic alphabet. The Elder Futhark is considered the eldest form of the runic alphabets. The word rune comes from the Old Norse word “Runa” meaning a secret or mystery. This meaning can suggest the use of the runes for divination. Early rune masters were thought to have a mystic understanding of the runes.
A note about the blank rune: We added a blank rune in order to have an extra in the event of one breaking or getting lost. There is no historical support for the blank or “Wyrd” rune and is a modern addition. You may use the blank rune as your intuition indicates. You will receive a total of 25 tiles.
Your set comes in a small burlap bag along with an informational sheet to give you a brief history and description of each symbol.
