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