A Little Book About the Runes, By Björn Jónasson

Runes are heavily associated with Vikings. Not only did they leave thousands of runestones behind them that still dot the Scandinavian landscape, but they also carved runes during their expeditions, forever marking Greek statues and walls in magnificent temples. 

This short and easy to read book tells the story of the runes. It explains each rune in the Younger Futhark with the help of a runic poem dating from the Viking Age - just as they were taught a thousand years ago. Each rune is also translated to the modern equivalent in the alphabet. 

There are few reliable English translations detailing the Younger Futhark, which is the set of runes used during the Viking Age. This book gives you the actual facts, poems and runes without any dubious, modern interpretations.
