Join NAHA at Norway House for our Spring Member Meetup! Our program features a talk by runologist Henrik Williams of Uppsala University: "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 inscriptions 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.

We'll kick off the evening with social time that includes Nordic-inspired eats and a cash bar. Our programs are always open to the public, so invite a friend!

5 pm reception; 6 pm program.
Members $10; Non-members $15
