I found this wand. I didn’t know that’s what it was but my kiddish brain thought it the right word. The markings on it I have since discovered are runes (Nyd Is Hægl. Rad. Wynn Rad Eoh Tir Os Nyd). But they’re not the Younger or Elder Futhark that are used on modern rune-sets. Good old Google helped me find them. They’re from the Anglo-Frisian Futhark, brought to England by the earliest Germanic settlers and found in Norfolk from CE 450 on. I’ve tried to read them but Google Translator hasn’t yet an option for Anglo-Saxon.
