The runic alphabet is traditionally known as Futhark, after the first six letters.

Casting runes has been used as a form of divination in Europe since the fourth century. The elder Futhark, which you see here, contains 24 runes.

The Elder Futhark consists of 24 runes divided into three groups of eight, known as an ætt (singular of ættir), which are said to be ruled over by both a god and goddess. The first ætt is ruled over by Frey and Freyja, the deities of fertility. The second ætt is ruled over by Heimdall and Mordgud, and the third and final ætt is ruled over by Tîwaz and Zisa.
