About The Rune Blog

There are millions of blogs in the world and even some about runic matters . Yet, I think there is still room for one more. This will be a blog entirely written in English and more geared towards the general public than professional runologists. Uppsala Runic Forum is followed by more than a thousand persons on Facebook, many of which do not read Modern Scandinavian languages.

This blog will be dedicated to spreading correct and, I hope, interesting information about all things runic. New finds and scientific discoveries will be presented, but also runic happenings such as lectures, seminars, excursions, and exhibitions. Disinformation about runes will be contradicted, too, not least concerning inscriptions in North America.
