Rune Secrets - Elder Futhark Rune Meanings The study of the runes and their meaning is a study of personal development, spiritual growth and the spread of consciousness throughout human societies and into the universe. The Elder Futhark Runes are a complete system of magic, and the oldest form of western wisdom. I hope to show you that they are also a complete system of psychology that can lead the seeker into understanding and enlightenment. In “The Book of Rune Secrets ” (Available on Amazon) I have done just that. I have also set up a large community at RuneSecrets.net, which I encourage you to join!

The known inscriptions in the Common Germanic or Elder Futhark (or alphabet) of 24 runes date from about the 2nd century until about the seventh century A.D.
The Anglo - Saxon runes had their own unique development from 700 AD to 1200 AD. These runes are very beautiful inscriptions. Codex Cotton: Salzburg Futhork: The Thames knife Runic poem in Hickes's Thesaurus: THE ANGLO-SAXON 33-RUNE FUTHARK
