On a mist-laden morning in Östergötland, around 800CE, a stone was raised. A monument was finished to make memories last for another hundred generations and more. Within this text, however, there are unusual symbols and what seems to be hidden messages... and the runestone at Rök is just one example. What knowledge lies beneath such scratched lines on wood and stone? Would you like to know more? This class will briefly explore the history of runic systems, cryptography, and the implementation of runic ciphers in period.
