PROGRAMS and RUNE READINGS
History Anew captivates audiences of all ages by truly bringing history to life. We create dynamic and engaging interpretive programs through conscientious research and fully accessible, historically crafted, artifacts. Embedded within all that we do is a deep respect for the knowledge, skill, and environmentally sustainable methods of the past. We strive to be a "museum" without the glass.
History Anew offers private (single or group) rune readings, by appointment. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to book your reading. Additionally, History Anew offers rune readings at many public venues throughout the year. Please see our Events Calendar for the date and location of our next public rune reading session.
When asked what rune readings were, by a curious onlooker at Cafe O' Play, I shared this description:
Having your runes read is simple and relaxing. Basically, it was Google for ancient and medieval Northern Europeans.
Here is how it works: Let's say you have a question that has been on your mind for some time - for example: where to go for the family vacation this year. You are really unsure what would be best - so you decide to ask the runes. The runes will then tell
you information that will make your decision easier. That's it!
If you would like to learn more about runes and rune readings - here is an informative article posted by the BBC: RUNES.
