Runes of the elder Futhark
The Anglo-Saxon Futhark added nine extra runes and some alternate forms
of the runes that are found in the Elder Futhark. Several of the runes
take on slightly different forms.
Os (Ansuz) takes on a slightly different form with the addition of
upward lines, while Aesc is the form that was Ansuz and Ar and Aes are
added to the end of the Futhark
