The research project „Runic Writing in the Germanic Languages (RuneS)“ investigates the oldest independently developed writing system in the Germanic languages, the runic script.
As a means of communication this script was used in different variants in large regions of Europe (with centres in the German-speaking area, in Great Britain and Scandinavia) over a period of more than 1,400 years. In these languages, it preceded and for a long co-existed with Latin literacy.
