    1. A book less about understanding the runes, and about understanding late Viking culture with the help of the runic monuments they left behind She spends much time on the rights of inheritance, but also touches on Scandinavian social structure and the influence on Christianity.A large part of this book is really just one big catalog of runic monuments It s good for researchers.
