About The Anglo-Saxon Futhorc Runes
Anglo-Saxon Futhorc is the Old English and Old Frisian (North Sea coastal area) form of the runic alphabet. It was originally used as a writing system from the 5th century onwards. It contains between 24 and 33 runes, which represent the different sounds of the runic alphabet. This version contains all 33 runes, including all nine of the later editions to the runic alphabet. Like Elder Futhark, each letter of the alphabet refers to a meaningful name, such as gift, joy, wealth, sun, etc. The Anglo-Saxon runes do not contain the Elder Futhark rune Ansur/Ansuz, instead they contain three replacement "A" sounding runes - Os (mouth), Ac (oak), and Aesc (ash).
