The Elder Futhark, used for writing Proto-Norse, consists of 24 runes that often are arranged in three groups of eight; each group is referred to as an Ætt. The earliest known sequential listing of the full set of 24 runes dates to approximately AD and is found on the Kylver Stone in Gotland, Sweden. Old Norse was the language spoken by the Vikings, and the language in which the Eddas, sagas, and most of the other primary sources for our current knowledge of Norse mythology were written. Old Norse is a member of the Germanic family of languages, which also includes English, German, and several other languages that are widely spoken today.
