will be attractive enough to wean folk with Celtic leanings away from Runes!
I’m glad you’ve mentioned that, as it is something that has bugged me on occasion for a long time. Over the years, I’ve taken a great interest in runes, runelore and Germanic mythology and I do think that there are a lot of parallels and insights to be gleaned from them. Nevertheless, I do admittedly wince at some of the stuff I’ve seen in “souvenir” shops and available online. Moreover, we know that the ancient Celtic-speaking peoples, for want of a better phrase, did have writing systems of their own – Lepontic, Celtiberian and that it was said that the Greek alphabet was also used by druids in Gaul when they needed to write anything and I do believe that there was an ancient oracular/divination system based on the Greek letters too. Why not explore that as well? When does learning from, adapting and incorporating tradition and just “copying” start and finish?
