What is the translation in English of the Runes displayed on the full size Seax displayed under Swords (weapons) Anglo Saxon?

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you are referring to the Battersea seax? or the Thames seax?

Welcome to myArmoury! Try this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rune

If that doesn't provide what you need, perhaps a picture of the seax in question could help us determine what the runes say....

It's the runic alphabet on one side, and the name Beagnoth on the other. Here's some more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thames_scramasax
