Write Your Name In Runes

For a light-hearted yet historically informative start to your Summer break, why not see how your name looks when written in the Futhark, the ancient runic alphabet of the Nordic peoples. PBS’s Nova Online Web page allows you to type your name into a little box, and then see how it would look in the runic script. The page also gives an interesting thumbnail introduction to the runes and their historical roots.
