Futhark

When Iceland was settled, the written alphabet of the Norse people consisted of runes. The word rune originally meant a secret or covert symbol used for magical purposes. Runes were scratched or chiseled into hard material like wood, horn or stone and were characterized by straight lines and angles. The runic alphabet that was used in ancient times is called Futhark based on the first six characters of the alphabet. Almost one hundred rune inscriptions have been discovered in Iceland and the oldest one, found in Viðey  (an island just off Reykjavík), is probably from the tenth or eleventh century. It has been hypothesized that inscriptions involving the entire runic alphabet, as seen in the wall sticker, where used as a talisman or had simply been carved for teaching purposes.

Fúþark

Þegar Ísland byggðist voru rúnir ritmál norrænna þjóða. Orðið rún þýddi upphaflega leyndarmál eða leynilegt tákn, notað til galdra. Rúnir voru ristar eða höggnar í hart efni eins og tré, horn eða stein og einkenndust af beinum línum og hvössum hornum. Rúnastafrófið sem var notað til forna kallast fúþark eftir fyrstu sex stöfum stafrófsins. Tæplega hundrað rúnaristur hafa fundist á Íslandi og sú elsta, sem fannst í Viðey, er líklegast frá tíundu eða elleftu öld. Áletranir þar sem fúþarkið stendur sjálfstætt, eins og í vegglímmiðanum, hafa fundist víða á Norðurlöndunum og talið er að slíkar áletranir hafi verið ritaðar til lærdóms eða jafnvel notaðar sem verndargripir.
