Runes are ancient symbols of germanic-scandinavian origin,later acquired and diffused also by Celts.
The Runic Alphabeth consists of 24 symbols that represent the entire Universe and that hold the megin , the magic power of every person.
The runic Alphabeth divides the Runes in three groups:
Of the FREYS AETT (Freir's family)
Of the HAGAL AETT(Hagal's family)
Of the TYR AETT (Tyr's family)
The word Rune is originated from hindoeuropean root "Reu" ,meaning rumble,while another theory takes it back to the hindoeuropean Veru,
the protector.
