Ask six rune experts ' Where did the runes originate from ?' and you will probably get 6 different answers. There are different versions of runes for each culture and era they seemed to come from. One person told me they came from the vikings, another said they originated from the druids, yet another said they came from aliens, each person was serious and thought they had the correct origins of the runes, how can everyone have a different answer about them ?The answer appears to be ' time ', over the years folks have made up so many tales about the runes that nobody knows the true origin of them. The very name ' rune ', is a word derived from the Gothic word ' runa ', which means"mystery."One of the oldest and first recorded uses of runes came from German tribes in central and Eastern Europe, these early uses of runes show that they were not even meant to be a language for everyday speech, but were used as a symbolic alphabet system.

meaning than any symbols, drawings or sigils do, unless you have a
belief that they are magical and will it, they are nothing more then
drawing a circle or a square and giving them special meanings. For
instance if I was around hundreds of years ago, I might of looked
towards the sun in the sky and then drawn or carved a circle on a stone
or piece of wood, to me it meant the power of the mighty glowing circle
of fire in the sky, to someone else years later that discovered my
circle carved into the stone, they may think that circle represented a
wheel, eye, moon, or just a plain circle. Each person uses runes for
their own purposes and each person seems to give them their own
In ancient Europe a lot of
adults seemed to do wood carvings, in fact it was a prized skill handed
down from one family member to another. Analphabet was needed ......

As often happens, ideas on the subject fall into one camp or the other. But maybe most sense lies in the middle ground.
