Book 3 – Sigils, Symbols & Alchemy… Coming soon!
The Dalecarlian runes, or dalrunes, was a late version of the runic script that was in use in the Swedish province of Dalarna until the 20th century. The province has consequently been called the “last stronghold of the Germanic script”.
When Carl Linnaeus visited Älvdalen in Dalarna in 1734, he made the following note in his diary: “The peasants in the community here, apart from using rune staves, still today write their names and ownership marks with runic letters, as is seen on walls, corner stones, bowls, etc. Which one does not know to be still continued anywhere else in Sweden.”
Keep a look out for it!
