Nordic Runes at College

What distinguishes a culture from civilisation is its ability to communicate and transmit information accurately to posterity. The Vikings were not merely a culture but a sophisticated civilisation with working literature based on runes.

During their History lesson, the Year 8 boys learnt about the awesome Viking warriors and their civilisation. One of the aspects which their lesson touched upon RUNES, the Viking alphabet.  As an exercise, they tried to write message in runes and afterwards had fun deciphering each other’s messages.
