900-Year-Old Viking Code Deciphered To Reveal 'Kiss Me' Love Message


A 900 year-old runic code (known as the j├Âtunvillur code) used by ancient Vikings has been cracked for the first time, revealing a simple message: 'Kiss me.'

Jonas Nordby, a runeologist from the University of Oslo, was able to crack the puzzle of the j├Âtunvillur code after he noticed that two individuals had signed their names on a piece of wood both in code and in the regular runic alphabet. He says that the message is typical of the light-hearted use of runes at the time.
