Iar byþ eafix and ðeah a bruceþfodres on foldan, hafaþ fægerne eardwætre beworpen, ðær he wynnum leofaþ.

Three runes from the Anglo-Saxon futhorc represent animals. They are the Aurochs, the horse and the eel. Eels are revered in many cultures; from the Maori of New Zealand to the Japanese who celebrate an unagi (eel) day each Summer called Doyo Ushinohi. 
The Anglo-Saxons also ate eels which are high in vitamin A and calcium. King Henry I is said to have died from eating too many lamprey eels. The oldest European eel lived in a well in Sweden and was 155 years old. They spawn in the bermuda triangle then swim all the way to England to live in our rivers and breed.
The text in the image is from the Anglo-Saxon rune poem.

Did you know that you have runes in your mobilephone? The Bluetooth technology that links wireless devices is named for the 10th century Danish king who united the disparate Danish tribes under his leadership. The communications corporation used his name as a symbolic representation of how their technology unites all digital devices under one protocol, and its trademark is a bind-rune that brings together the runes for H and B - Harald Bluetooth (Harald Blåtand).
