8oz ceramic cup with hand-carved Runic inscription



In 1955, a fire destroyed a large part of the town Bryggen, Norway. Excavations led archeologists to discover over 550 items with runic inscriptions dating back to 1150-1350AD. 


During this era, it was said that men would carve love messages or poems into sticks and drop them along the laps of the women they had interest in. 

Among the items found, a stick with the runic inscription translating to: 


Mun þú mik,
man ek þik.
Unn þú mér,
ann ek þér.


Translating into English: 


‘Remember me,
I remember you.
Love me,
I love you’.
