My current research concerns the perception of runes and the runic alphabet by medieval scholars and scribes, as evidenced by their utilisation of the script in manuscripts and the textual afterlife of this material. In my thesis I examine the practice of copying manuscript runes in the period after the ninth century and its connection with the idea of medieval antiquarianism/archaisticism. My PhD thesis also investigates the transition from epigraphical to written runes and its effect on this perception. I include both Old Norse and Anglo-Saxon runes, and analyse the differences and similarities between the use of these runes and how they are possibly connected in insular and continental manuscripts.
