Modules

This module trains students in the essential skills of runology: they learn how to examine, transliterate, transcribe, translate and present runic inscriptions. This includes working with databases, corpus editions and specialist literature. In the workshops participants will develop and practise skills using photographs and other visual materials and will then be able to apply these skills on a field trip, with hands-on study of inscribed objects. At the end of the semester students undertake an independent project on a set of inscriptions.
