The first rune is to the immediate left of the Nornir Chest. You need to throw your Blades of Chaos at it and ignite the brazier.

The second rune is down the pathway to the left of the chest. Jump down, follow this path, and you should see another rune brazier underneath the waterfall. Before using your Blades of Chaos on it, throw your Leviathan Axe at the waterfall to stop the water from dropping. After you’ve done this, use your Blades of Chaos to light up the brazier.

The final rune is through down this pathway, to the left. You will need to jump over the gap. When you reach the other side, throw your Blades of Chaos at the brazier, and light them up. Now, return to the Nornir Chest before you recall your Leviathan Axe to unlock it. If you recall your Axe before opening the chest, the second rune will reactivate.
