An introduction to English runes by R. I Page( Book )

33 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Runes are quite frequently mentioned in modern writings, usually imprecisely as a source of mystic knowledge, power or insight. This book sets the record straight. It shows runes working as a practical script for a variety of purposes in early English times, among both indigenous Anglo-Saxons and incoming Vikings." "The author, widely regarded as the expert in this field, examines the introduction of the runic alphabet to England in the fifth and sixth centuries, the forms and values of its letters, and the ways in which it developed, until its decline at the end of the Anglo-Saxon period. He discusses how runes were used for informal and day-to-day purposes, on formal monuments, as decorative letters in prestigious manuscripts, for owners' or makers' names on everyday objects, perhaps even in private letters."--Jacket
Chronicles of the Vikings : records, memorials, and myths by R. I Page( Book )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings the Vikings to life, showing them as they saw themselves, portrayed in their own writings or in the reports of people who knew them closely. It comprises a series of new translations from primary sources: runic inscriptions left behind by the Vikings, poems of their official skalds, literary works that entertained them, the few prose historical accounts that derive direct from Vikings, and eyewitness reports of how the northern peoples lived." "To understand the primary sources it is essential to have some idea of how they came into being and how they were preserved. In his extensive introduction, Professor Page discusses the problems involved in using writings of this sort and looks at the information that is preserved solely in these primary sources."--Jacket
