From Runes to Ruins was nominated for the Folklore Society's non-print media award 2014. The judges released the following statement.
"This very professionally produced film by Tom Rowsell and Jamie Roper is a lengthy documentary following Rowsell’s personal investigation, starting with an ancient earthen burial mound remembered from his childhood. He explores Anglo-Saxon haunted barrows and pagan shrines to the dead; seeks evidence for roots of a pagan past by consultations with neo-pagans and Viking re-enactors, and finds healing gods and ancient cultures in old chronicles."

Gripping from the start, this personal and cultural journey into the religious heart of our Anglo-Saxon identity shows us how loud the past echoes even in the midst of the modern world with all its myriad and transient distractions. A film about the nature and value of identity that should not be missed.Richard Rudgley- Author and television presenter
