From the swedish vikings 29 by Angelofdark666 From the swedish vikings 29 by Angelofdark666
From the land of the vikings.......

The rune stones!

Our ancestors, the vikings was writing messages on the stones in the old language called futhark but more knowned as runes.

They wrote messeges to honour their living but most of all to honour their dead and to write important messages to outhers.

lol when i used to go hiking i'd carve my name on cool stones and this reminds me of that so much, esp. cuz u cant do curved letters easily when writing on rock so even latin characters end up looking like runic ^_^
