site presents a score of documents related to the runes,
the runic inscriptions ,
the runic charms,
and magic, Siberian and Saami shamanism, and many facts of Nordic and
Celtic mythology and others.
Two long range threads are presently being spun on this site:
One is a try at understanding the concept of Norse örlög and sköp by commenting (almost) all the Norse texts speaking of it. All the links on this topic start HERE.
The other is a literal translation and understanding of Hrafnagaldur Óđins (done: introduction and stanzas 1-12)

The famous ship-grave
of Oseberg has given us numerous archaeological treasures. Among them,
an interesting but puzzling finding has still today no satisfactory
interpretation: the so-called "Buddha-břtte"
(Buddha-pail). Here is a discussion of the find, with links to
on healing is actually a summary of Yves' approach to healing. So, in a
sense, it's a summary of this site and his book too.
The topic and even the
existence of a runic-like writing originating from Hungary is often
superbly ignored by the runologists, even when they discuss the
possible origin of the runes. It seems that, worse, the Hungarian
Academy of Sciences does not want to see the topic even discussed.
Thus, it is left to a handful of faithful Hungarians who try to show
the antiquity of their rovás writing. When so few people are active in
a field, it cannot but show large deficiencies. For example, when a set
of shapes is found, nothing proves it represents runes, rovás, or
gothic letters, etc. The recognition comes when some archeological
studies have been performed, the shapes are well recognized for
belonging to a given alphabet, an interpretation is given, and some
kind of coherent body of knowledge is formed about the topic. To
