Upcoming Events

Dr. Henrik Williams to speak at the the Norwegian-American Historical Association Spring Member Meetup. Dr Williams' talk is entitled "The Importance of Runic Inscriptions for History — And the Dangers of Fake History in Runology."

Runic inscriptions are unique sources to our ancient history. Not all historians deal honestly with the runic evidence, however. Williams will illustrate how runic incriptions offer surprising insights into the past but also why some sensational runic items are just too good to be true. Williams will also discuss contributions to the field by NAHA's first editor, Theodore Blegen.

April 11 at Norway House
5 pm reception; 6 pm program
Member $10; Non-members $15
