Runestone from Norway, ca. 400. Usually interpreted:  ‘IuthingaR. [Maybe: IuthingaR (lies here).]  I, WakraR, have learned  writing.’  Another suggestion is that WakraR says he ‘took land’, that is, settled down.    Runes are not a language, but the Old Germanic alphabet. Each sign represented a sound. Runes were developed around the birth of Christ, probably in Scandinavia. By 500 AD they were being used by Germanic peoples from the Black Sea in the south to Norway and England in the north.

Christianity was established as the official religion in Norway soon after the year 1000. Runic inscriptions with a Christian content appear from an early date. Most runestones from the late Viking Age are in fact Christian monuments. Here, a brick from a church in Oslo from about 1300 with the runes ariak. The brick was part of a larger frieze containing the angel Gabriel’s greeting to the Virgin Mary from the Latin prayer: [Ave M]aria g[ratia plena], ‘Hail Mary, full of grace’.
