PRZEKAZUJĄC TOŻSAMOŚĆ: WSPÓŁCZESNE RUNY Z ORKNEY

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper explores the role of runes in communal identity formation and self-presentation in the small Scottish island group of Orkney. Its data consists of publically visible runic texts which are produced in the 20th and 21st centuries, appearing for example on signage, local products and souvenirs, in logos and public artwork, and on people’s own bodies. It is shown that runes in Orkney function as an outward manifestation of island identity, both towards tourists and internally in the community.
