Overview

"Gyda says you should go home" - Runic inscriptions from Bryggen in Bergen.

We welcome you to a peek into the world's largest collection of medieval runic inscriptions. All of the inscriptions on display were found in the Bryggen area.
A dark night more than 750 years ago, Gyda might have been tired of her husband's late nights at the pub. Perhaps she carved the inscription in a hurry and sent one of her children along with the message.

The runes speak straight to us from medieval Bergen. We find letters of trade, receipts, magical formulaes, religious inscriptions, Norse poetry, poetry and literary references in Latin, secret messages, sexual hints, drunken nonsense and incomprehensible messages.

Most of the messages were not meant for our eyes. The message was carved with a knife on an available wooden stick, delivered to the recipient, (hopefully) read and then thrown away.
