Runes have been around since 150 AD, and they are made up of alphabetic letters that the people in Germany used for their writing in Latin. The Runic writing is often used to decorate places and it was written within religious things. Norse rune words are found on old things such as monuments and other symbolic things. The Norse runes were used in rituals, and they were often considered magical.
With Norse Mythology, runes were used by the Father of the gods, Odin and he did a ritual where he hanged himself from the World Tree. He reached down and was known to slain people during war. He gave the runes their meaning and those who had relationship with him were blessed.
