I ask because my boyfriend is looking to have a custom coffee table with runes carved into it and his signed AA flag put into glass on the top of the table.

Thanks in advance.
I think Arild Hauge's page is one of the best. Try here: http://www.arild-hauge.com/efuthark.htm#24
Ther is a book called simply "Runes" by Bernard King that I like, too, but it might be difficult to find. In any case, Hauge's page is good and concise.

King's book was reprinted as "Elements of the Runes" by Element Press a couple years ago and would be a lot easier to find than the earlier printing. It is indeed a very good starting point.

Awwww! I was starting to get worried it wouldn't get to you before the kid was a teenager...geez that shipping took forever (not the mail part, but the part before it left the warehouse). I'm glad it fits. Good on you for the article, too. Why don't you post the link here?!

Groves and Sacred Spaces in Germanic and Scandinavian Heathenry. I am currently writing one for the next journal on heathen worship and have another one backed up after that on gifting.

So I ran a search and nothing popped up, but excuse me if this has already been asked. What are the 3 rings in Mjollnir? I got my own hammer finally and I noticed the 3 rings (at least i think they are) on it. Do they mean anything or is it just knotwork?

There are any number of symbols with rings included, and there are huge varieties of hammers, too. So, I guess it depends on what your Mjällner looks like... Picture?

Oh, that's not three rings, though. The original is a knot work thingy that looks like a figure 8 with a circle over it, sort of. It's just there to be pretty.

Unfortunately there are extremely few viking movies out there.. One worthy of mention is Valhalla Rising

Not sure about historical accuracy, but pretty good old movie is
"Korpen Flyger"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087432/

Funny but as a comedy only:
Erik the Viking
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097289/

Yeah, what Gnoff said. Korpen Flyger is called Return of the Barbarians in it's English language release. There is at least one follow-up to it, too. Beowulf and Grendel covers about 1/3 of the original Beowulf, but it's decent, because they've at least tried to be somewhat historically accurate. They used some equipment from some of the members of our group for it, so I know for a fact that at least some of the costumes etc. are accurate! LOL.
Erik the Viking is a must see, as is 13th Warrior, just for its sheer fucked upped ness. They're both funny, and really, about as Viking as Lord of the Rings, which is based much on Norse lore...

Outlander was good fun. Not sure how accurate it was to period stuffs, but the idea of a space man landing in with vikings aside, it's a rather good flic.
