The writing system used to write Anglo-Saxon language roughly from the 5th to 11th centuries, gradually being phased out in favor of the Latin alphabet. The Futhorc developed from an earlier, nearly identical writing system called the Elder Futhark, used primarily in Scandinavia, which dates back to the 2nd century AD, and which was later simplified to the Younger Futhark. These writing systems are what people usually refer to when they speak of "runes," and a runestone is simply a stone which was engraved with runes.
Also called: elder futhark, futhark, runes
