520 8  "Runes -- letters in a set of related alphabets used to 
       write various Germanic languages before the adoption of 
       the Latin alphabet -- can be found across northwestern 
       Europe, on everything from gravestones to jewelry. This 
       mysterious and ancient script, in use from late antiquity 
       through the early Middle Ages, has fascinated forensic 
       scientists, archaeologists, linguists, art historians -- 
       and even J. R. R. Tolkien.  Illustrated with objects from 
       the British Museum's collection that show the inscriptions
       in context, this engaging book is the ideal introduction 
       to an age-old writing system" -- Back cover.
