Divination is an Ancient Art that used to be taken very seriously

“In Anglo-Saxon times, Runnymede was known as Rune-mede…the area of the casting of the runes. Historians have suggested that, for kings and chieftains, this area may have been a sacred place, significant for divination and auguries. Wizards who specialized in such rituals foretold the wealth of the land in the coming season, the health of kings and princesses, chiefs and warriors, and the likely outcomes of battles. The history of the area as a royal divination site may have been why it was chosen as a location for signing such an important document as the Magna Carta.”
