An ogam-inscribed flying horse of Woden, with a slightly garbled version of

Old Norse words Garflak Gungnir = "The spear Gungnir."  Like many other inscriptions

found along the valley of the Milk River in Alberta, Canada, this work was carried out in

recent centuries.  It shows an astonishing retention of ancient tradition among peoples

who now speak an Amerindian tongue and who had probably long since forgotten the

meaning or pronunciation of the words incorporated into the rebus (Fell 1982).
