Casting runes is one of the most mysterious divination methods, one that is steeped in Viking history. Runes are more than just a tool for divination. The Elder Futhark is the oldest form of the runic alphabet. Its inscriptions are found on artifacts such as runestones, amulets and tools dating back to the 2nd through 8th centuries. The Elder Futhark is divided into three Aetts, which is a family of 8 runes, with each Aett being ruled by its own God and represented here on our Elder Futhark Tree.
