This essay on Anglo-Saxon runes first appeared in the journal Archaeologia for 1840; it drew on the work of Wilhelm Grimm, but broke new ground for Anglo-Saxon studies in its survey of the Ruthwell Cross and the Cynewulf poems. This edition includes new notes and translations of the Latin and Old English material quoted in the text.
