Athanasius Kircher, S.J., was a 17th-century German Jesuit scholar who published around 40 works, most notably in the fields of oriental studies, geology, and medicine. Kircher has been considered the true "founder of Egyptology", because his work was conducted "before the discovery of the Rosetta Stone rendered Egyptian hieroglyphics comprehensible to scholars". He also recognised the relationship between the hieratic and hieroglyphic scripts.
Trollrunor, lönnrunor or rungaldrar, runes used for magic purposes (haven't checked how correct the info is, there's a lot of modern hocus pocus mixed in many of the guides or chart you find. Know ginfaxi was used by glima wrestlers. Aegishjálmur is probably the best known, but sadly claimed by neo nazi groups today, kind of like the Thor's hammer was in the 90's.)
