The Runes: A Human Journey
Asking where the runes come from is a bit like asking in what year did Adam and Eve leave the Garden of Eden? Yet, they are connected questions. Linguistically, runes come from Phoenician roots that split into Greek and Italic to eventually form the runes with Hebrew and Arabic on the other side of the family tree. This is the Indo-European Family of Languages. The languages and the stories they tell are connected at the core and this book attempts to weave them back together. Mythology that is equally as ancient is essential to understanding the runes. You will find the stories of Norse mythology, Eastern philosophy, and even Native American traditions fleshed out in the Glossary of this book. Because it is all connected.
