BIND RUNES: We see a lot of confusion with Post-Viking age symbology, in particular with the Icelandic staves. Whilst the staves may include runes, not all of them do. So whilst some may be classified as "bind runes", others are staves or symbols in their own right. This image shows a variety of symbols, all that have been commonly described as "bind runes". However, only 9, 11, 12, 13, and 15 are bind runes.

In Norse mythology, Huginn ("thought") Muninn ("memory") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, to bring information to the god Odin. In the Poetic Edda, a disguised Odin expresses that he fears that they may not return from their daily flights. The Prose Edda explains that Odin is referred to as "raven-god" due to his association with Huginn Muninn, who are described as perching on his shoulders. Odin gave the ravens the ability to speak.
