EIHWAZ the yew, URUZ the wild ox, KENAZ the hearth fire. Created by the Nordic and Germanic tribes of northern Europe, the runes began as a magickal system of pictographs representing the forces and objects in nature.

  • Complete descriptions of the twenty-four runes of the Elder Futhark, plus WYRD, the blank rune
  • The differences between bindrunes and runescripts
  • Four rune layouts and detailed rune interpretations, including reversed position meanings
  • How to carve runes and create talismans
  • Meanings and uses of the runes in magick
