Runic alphabet, also called Futhark, writing system is of uncertain origin, used by Germanic peoples of northern Europe, Britain, Scandinavia, and Iceland from about the 3rd century to the 16th or 17th century AD. Runes drawn on wood or stone were thought to have magical powers. They could predict the future, counteract harmful forces, provide various qualities, or they could be used in incantations, curses and magic spells. But most of the known runic inscriptions are of a more down-to-earth nature and were for everyday use.
