The Futhark runes have a colorful and dated history. There are literally several hundred known inscriptions dating back to the first through the fifth century. The areas of what is now known as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Scandinavian countries have yielded the greatest artifacts. Inscriptions were found on jewelry, utensils, weapons, bones and stones. Most were discovered in grave sites and bogs. Rune masters and rune users equally indulge in the throwing of the runes for the magical, practical, and playful applications they provide.
