The above runes are both Elder and Younger Futhark. The Elder Futhark was used up to the 8th century and replaced by not only the Younger Futhark, but also the Anglo-Saxon (also Anglo-Frisian) runes. The Younger Futhark was a simplification of the Elder (16 runes in stead of 24) and used in Viking-age Scandinavia and in the late 10th century also in Iceland, Greenland, England (Danelaw) and several other places. The Anglo-Saxon runes were an extension of the Elder (31 or 33 runes in stead of 24) and were used in Western-Europe. The use of runes rapidly diminished due to christianity and replaced by Latin writing. Younger Futhark changed over the centuries due to the change of languages, from Oldnorse to Old Danish, Old Swedish and Old Norse and the various dialects of these languages. If you see a "dot" in a rune, it is a variation of the Younger Futhark, called "dotted runes". Sometimes parts of the rune were left out. These are the socalled "short-twig" runes.

These particular set of runes were used by Germantic tribes, while there are many different tribes in the world who used symbols that could be called runes. People romanticise Nordic and German history like it's the f-ing religion. \e_e/ I mean there was that one Hitler guy who strongly believed that these runes and Nordic forklore held tremendious power and could only be unlocked by somoene with Aryan blood. Aryans were not German .... They were Persian and they practiced an Abrahamic religion like the Jews he hated so much.

The Author of this page is mistaken a little reserch could have helped avoid spreadding misinformation, these are called elder futhark runes. They are indo-european and Germantic...
They were used by Vikings:
Germanic tribes for Northwest Germanic dialects in the Migration Period dialects. They were used from the 2nd to the 8th centuriesIn Scandinavia, from the late 8th century, the script was simplified to the Younger Futhark, and the Anglo-Saxons and Frisians extended the Futhark, which eventually became the Anglo-Saxon futhorc. Unlike the Anglo-Saxon furhorc and the Younger Futharks, which remained in use during the Early and the High Middle Ages respectively,
The Runes were used not just for communication but also divination. They were created as a way like with cuniform to have a record of trade that evovled into a regional langauge.
You know google is right there in the plam of our hands most of the time and it really is free!

Germanics, not Germans. Germanic is the whole family, German is the branch of the Germanic family that stuffs its face with sausages.

And runes weren't exclusively Scandinavian/Norse, and certainly not Slavic.
