By the mediæval period the much reduced Younger Futhark was no longer able to support the scandinavian languages. A large number of extra runestaves were needed.

This was done by using both short and long twig runes and creating a series of dotted runes.

This was used to write Norwegian and Swedish between 1200 and 1700 AD.
