Cracking the Runic Code

Runes offer fascinating and surprising insights into an exciting past. Runic inscriptions are the only original sources for a thousand years, yet they are mostly overlooked in historical research. Front-line runology is carried out today at Uppsala University, where it has a 400-year past, but runic discovery is now entering a critical phase. New runic finds await interpretation and disinformation about runes, not least in the United States, needs exposing. More resources are needed. Are you ready to get involved?

In 2010 and 2015, Uppsala University through Professor Henrik Williams, carried out month-long lecture and fundraising tours in the United States, and another tour took place in the fall of 2016. Altogether, 16 states and the District of Columbia were visited.

By supporting our vital runic research at Uppsala University you will be helping to bring about fundamental understanding of our shared history. A major donation leading to the establishment of an endowed chair could be named after one of our donors.
