Ogham Stones

New Publication:
Before people in Ireland started writing in manuscripts made of vellum they wrote on other materials, primarily stone, in a writing system called ogham. Our earliest ogham inscriptions on stone are dated on linguistic grounds to between the 4th and the 7th century AD. Over 400 known examples of ogham stones and fragments of various shapes and sizes have survived, each with their own unique biography or story. The publication explores the writing form; where it can be found; and how we can #PassItOn to future generations.
