The Weserrunes are Old Saxish rune inwritings, which were carved in bones. They were found in 1927 at Braak (Lower Saxland/Theechland) near the stream Weser. It has long been fighted whether the runic inwritings are faked or of true saxish orspring. A newfangled worldkenly underseek had bewised that some bones are from the 4th and 5th  yearhundreds. This is the eld were Saxish settlers first came upon Britain. The Weserunes are the oldest known writings of a elder kind of the Old Saxish tongue. This tongue is most likely the fore-elder speech of Low Saxish and Old English. Today the Weserrune bones are kept in the rike crafthall of lundyore and yesteryore in Oldenburg.

Fund loreEdit

Ludwig Ahrens a life guard and dabbler loreman from Braak found seven bones of cows and horses during building work near the stream Weser. In 1927 and 1928 Ahrens gave many things inholding the Weserunes to the crafthall of Oldenburg.

The lorespeaker and head leader of the crafthall Hugo von Buttel-Reepen showed the bones and flint runestones to other loremans at a worldkenly meeting. He believed that the bones were of true Saxish orspring. But the other loremans thought that he must be wrong as they heard the unbelievable tale of the Weserunes. It was a awful eyeblink in Hugo von Buttel-Reepen walk of life. In the next few yeartens the loremans fighted alot about the Weserrune bones.

In 1989 Peter Pieper was able to bewise that the bones are ancient but the flint runestones from Hugo von Buttler-Reepens thingstock are faked.

There are many beholdings about the tale which the inwritings tells us. The loreman Peter Pieper believes that the runes should give strength to the Saxish fyrdmans in battles against the Romish Rike. Pieper think that "'Inghari" and "Uluhari" are lede names. The rune ᛝ(ing-) and the word "Ingwe" are linked with the god Ingvar.
