You Will Learn

Runic inscriptions are the only original sources from the Viking world.
On runestones we meet the messages of the Vikings themselves, and this lecture will focus on particularly fascinating runic items from all over the world.

About this Event

Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets, which were used to write various Germanic languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet and for specialized purposes thereafter. The earliest runic inscriptions date from around 150 AD, and they are still in use today.

Professor Henrik Williams holds the professorship in Scandinavian Languages at Uppsala University. He is primarily a philologist, teaching and doing research in runology, Old Swedish, and Old Icelandic. Professor Williams has authored numerous scholarly papers in both Swedish and English and published a variety of pieces including a book on the language in Viking age Swedish runes stones, an edition of the Old Swedish romance Haerra Ivan and major articles on the conversion of Sweden. Recently, he was awarded the Rudbeck medal for his ground-breaking work in runology.
