Mere scratches? Fakes? Copies? Writing, but is it runic? Ever wondered about the runic inscriptions of North America and where they came from? Come along to a talk by Professor Henrik Williams of the University of Uppsala, Sweden, who will explain what they are and where they came from. All welcome.
