Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets, which were used to write various Germanic languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet and for specialised purposes thereafter. These include the Elder Futhark, the Younger Futhark, the Anglo-Saxon Futhork, and others. During the Viking Age, beginning somewhat before 800 AD, the Younger Futhark came into use in Scandinavia. This alphabet uses only sixteen runes, and in many cases one symbol is used to represent many sounds.
