    The Runes were found when Odin, in his search for knowledge stabbed his side with a spear and hung himself from the world tree. On the ninth day of his hanging he found the Runes and memorized them.

    Havamal 142:

    Runes wilt thou find, and rightly read

    of wondrous weight,

    of mighty magic,

    which that dyed the dread god,

    which that made the holy hosts,

    and were etched by Othin

    The Runes can be used for many things. The ones that come to my mind immediately:

    1. An Alphebet

    2. Divination

    3. Rune casting (spell work)
