Runes are a magical alphabet of symbols used for healing, divination and in a variety of charms and invocations. According to myth, the runes were created by Norse God Odin, also known as Woden or Wotan, the one one-eyed chief of gods and god of wisdom and war. Odin gained the forbidden, mystical knowledge of the runes by impaling himself with his own spear to Wggdrasil, the world tree, for nine days and nights. Runic symbols have been discovered in rock carvings and dating back to prehistoric Neolithic and bronze ages. The early druids may also have been familiar with runes.
