One can also find other translations of the same Rune poems in Edred Thorsson's 'Runelore', published by Weiser.

In this book Thorsson also gives a few dates for the poems.

The Old Norweigen Rune Rhyme he says dates from the end of the 12 century to the beginning of the 13th.

The Old Icelandic Rune poem dates from around the 15th century.

The Old English Rune Poem dates from around the end of the 10th century, though it is uncertain since the translation made in the 18th century was lost in a fire.
