I was reading an article about 'Wyrd' on the Thegns of Mercia website and saw how they said that Urðr is a cognate of Wyrd and thus we could use Weorðend (Verðandi) and Sculd (Skuld). I have thought a about this for a long time. Could we use Norse scripts, look at the language, put it into (as closely as possible) Old English and then see how these are used in AS Culture. This may be completely idiotic, but if we could connect the two similiar cultures via language and thus paint a better picture of AS Paganism.
