Project 2 - Part B
In an Old English manuscript once belonging
to the Christchurch of Canterbury there is something
written with runes at the bottom of two pages.
A part of it looks something like this.
My line break represents the actual page break.
In the spring of 1931, during excavations
for a new school house in the Swedish town of
Sigtuna, a runic amulette was discovered.
It has since then been in the care of the
National Museum of Sweden.
The amulette measures about 8cm x 3cm
and is covered tightly on both sides with runes.
Like the Kvinneby amulette (in Project 1) it
has a hole in it so it can be worn around
the neck. A part of the inscription reads
like this. I have omitted what seem to me
to be unnecessary additional strokes.
Your assignment is to transliterate and translate
Some additional discussion points:
What do the inscriptions have in common with
each other? What do they have in common with the part
of Žrymskviša in part a of this project? Is a connection
likely? Of what kind?
