I reckon you could impress me by contributing to it. Don't be shy now.

Old World Scripts is a location in Red Dead Redemption 2, in the Roanoke Ridge region of the New Hanover territory.

It is situated northeast of Annesburg and southeast of Manito Glade.


Located as far northeast as you can travel, the Old World Script can be found in Roanoke Ridge and is one of the easiest points of interest to find. Veering off the path north of Annesburg, the player can find a rather large rock amongst the shrubbery.

The rock is engraved with runic letters/symbols in the middle, and also consists of an engraved serpent which surrounds the text in the middle; the serpent also bears the runic symbols.

The script is written in Old Norse, and is obviously a reference to Vikings. The following script in the middle translates to the following: "We arrived by boat. Beautiful land, gracious people. So we left them to live in peace."


  • This location is one of the many points of interest that can be found across the map.
  • It has been known that the Vikings indeed settled in North America around one thousand years ago, however, unlike the game, Vikings only settled around the eastern coasts of Canada, not as far west as the game portrays.
