Are the stave churches' tags in runes? When I was an archaeologist in
Norway, we found pieces of wood with a hook on the end and a name carved
in runes that we were told were used (our site was along the river) by
workers in the warehouses (16th cent) to claim the meat they tossed in
the communal pot at the beginning of the day. Whether true or not, runes
would be easier to carve into wood.
