The Norwegian-American Historical Association (NAHA) invites their members and friends to a reception, followed by a program featuring runologist Henrik Williams of Uppsala University. William's talk is titled "The Importance of Runic Inscriptions for History--And the Dangers of Fake History in Runology." The evening kicks off with a reception that includes Nordic-inspired eats and a cash bar.
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 editor Theodore Blegen.
Reception begins at 5:00pm
Program begins at 6:00pm
