Mislabeled link[edit]

I found a link here purporting to be an extract from Krause's book. In fact, it was a PDF version of a page created by Yve Kodratoff which cites the interpretations of Krause and others together with the author's own ideas. So I've added an External Links section and moved the Yves Kodratoff link to there, changing it so that it now links to Yves Kodratoff's index page. I think this is more convenient because (1) it can be loaded quicker, being in html, and (2) it provides references and from it you can access all of his material relating to the early inscriptions. I added Molkte's book to the references. --Dependent Variable.

If the bracteate is from Zealand, why is the entry given under the German name for Zealand? Why not the English or the Danish? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:31, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

New translation?[edit]

I have recently received this bracteate with an attached note saying something different - quote "Bracteate from German Iron Age (c. 400-500A.D). This particular one decorated with a relatively long runic inscription: "they call me Hariuha, the master of fate, I bring you good luck"

This is different to what is in wikipedia entry,

Any feedback from anyone? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thepumpboy (talkcontribs) 15:04, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

This bracteate should be cited under "Zealand" -- Seeland is the German name for the island the Danes call Sjælland. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:09, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
