Gold Bractate Inscriptions


I know that many readers of this blog are yearning to read a >900-page bok in German about the enigmatic inscriptions on Migration Period gold bracteates. Fret no more, Dear Reader! Svante Fischer just sent me a link to a 7.4 megabyte PDF file containing such a work: Sean Nowak’s 2003 doctoral thesis Schrift auf den Goldbrakteaten der Völkerwanderungszeit, published by the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen, Germany. Alu, lathu, laukaR!

  1. For those who don’t speaka da Deutsche or don’t fancy a download the size of Lichtenstein, there is a more accessible PDF in Engerlish concerning runes of this and other types here.

    And if you don’t even like the sound of that, then I can exclusively reveal that:

    “Chance Alawin, Chance Alawin, Chance Alawin, Happy New Year Alawid!” is typical of the species.
