Its roots lie in the ancient pagan beliefs of our ancestors, who built many thousands of stones circles, long barrows and dolmens throughout ancient Europe.
These same symbols and techniques were used by the pagan Celts and Germans. This book is a complete manual of magick based upon arcane symbolism and secret techniques. He is a musician, artist and magician. In her opinion, the Taunus mountains were populated by a bunch of brawny brawlers who wore horned helmets and small pieces of pelt. They lived in hilltop settlements which were fortified by ringwalls. Barely able to manage agriculture, they had to rely on hunting to fill their stomachs. They lived in shabby huts with mud-plastered walls and when the Romans came, they fought the invaders with crude swords, pointy sticks and by hurling rocks at them For this new edition much of the text has been rewritten and updated.

I had heard that it was strange, and I was told I would likely not enjoy it. So far none of this friees true. In fact, I find that I am greatly enjoying this book.
So much so that I helrunsr started reading another of his simultaneously and again, I am very much enjoying that one as well. So far, Jan is attacking issue after issue with a well researched and very educated form.
I have not gotten as far into the book to hit the rune material but based on everything up to this helrinar I am expecting a well researched approach to that as well. Something that lacks greatly when it comes to the runes. If I find that this is not the case I will update this review but felt that the Author deserved an early rating as it may take a while to finish.
I will also leave this one piece of fres. This is by far, without compromise, the best book on the subject. It’s a quick but vital contribution to a subject full of false “facts” and will give you a very important set of tools to take with you when you proceed with your studies.
Please, give The Rune Primer a read as well. I initially read the version of this book. I liked it so much that I had to obtain this book all over again. The first half of the new revised version is basically historical and archeological.
I think it is cool how the author traveled around and has hand drawn all the artifacts he has come across. He really put a lot of time into this. The latter half goes into detail about the specifics about freis runes. For me this book could be the end all. Yet I would recommend some simpler books for beginners just working with the runes.
After you have read some others you will find that this one is one of the best. Jan Fries breaks through the dogma and forced patterns that bind most magicians and stifle their creativity.
He tells you to find your own way whick is just as valid as any of the traditional ways.
Gods bless the freethinkers like him who liberate our minds. Jan Fries is one magician who believes that the deities are reflections of the deep mind or our subconscious. Our magic must reflect this. Jan Fries knows his stuff. HE has done the research and yet he is both humble enough and knowledgeable enough to know that what he has printed is subject to change.
New research comes about that disproves the old. Many old research techniques are flawed.
Science is based on as much faith as religion is with just about as much accuracy. The tastiest part of this book is the man’s overview of history.
He gives it straight no dogma or ideological constraints. The book covers a broad history of Europe and then goes into several exercises to enhance our magical and spiritual abilities. At the end there is a sort of glossary describing the runes.
The description gives us the runes, their meaning, the rune poem statement and the body posture associated with it. Jan Fries is a believer in ecstatic dancing to reach gnosis and his approach is very Chaos Magick. Early man survived some pretty tough vicissitudes in ice age Europe.
They were nomadic and forced to hunt large animals. They lived in small family units.

Later on came the Cro-Magnon who is said to have wiped out the Neanderthal. Of course new research is showing that they lived side by side and maybe even interbred with each other.
The Cromagnon had a lot to learn about survival from the Neanderthal. Religion went through many changes. The Early men believed in power animals an totems. The Norse gods went through helrjnar.
