About Runor (Runes)

Runor is a new digital research platform that makes approximately 7,000 runic inscriptions available, as well as reports and images from various databases, institutions and collections.

No country has as many runic inscriptions as Sweden. The purpose of the platform is to simplify research and to make existing runic material digitally accessible, wherever you are in the world. The platform will not require login and the platform is also suited for field work.
