Two Recent Runic Finds from Orkney
University College London.
2015 (English)In: Futhark: International Journal of Runic Studies, ISSN 1892-0950, E-ISSN 1892-0950, Vol. 6, 143-151 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article provides accounts of OR 22 Quoys and OR 23 Naversdale, two runic inscriptions recently found in Orkney. There is discussion of the find circum­stances, followed by a description of the object bearing the runes (the former a folded lead plaque, the latter an irregular stone fragment), a trans­runi­fication, transliteration, and commentary on the reading. Thereafter comes an inter­pretation of the text. In the case of OR 23 this is straightforward enough since the text consists of a sequence from the Pater Noster, the first instance of a Latin-language runic inscription from Orkney. OR 22 provides more of a chal­lenge, and various suggestions are offered.
