Runic dating system easter table
Little is known about the origins of the Runic alphabet and no one knows exactly when, where or who invented it.Runes are the characters of the earliest written alphabet used by the Germanic peoples of Europe called Futhark.
Runic texts are found on hard surfaces such as rock, wood, and metal.
The characters were also scratched on coins, jewelry, monuments, and slabs of stone.
The Runic alphabet is known as Futhark after the first six runes, namely f,u,th,a,r and k.
It consisted of 24 letters, 18 consonants and 6 vowels, and was a writing system where each character marked a certain sound.
Runes could be written in both directions and could also be inverted or upside down.
The earliest runes consisted almost entirely of straight lines, arranged singly or in combinations of two or more.
