The Ogham Alphabet - Ireland's Ancient Alphabet

Ogham, the ancient Irish alphabet, dating to at least 500 AD if not much earlier, was used in pre-Christian and early-Christian Ireland. Etched on standing stones, the inscriptions usually commemorate a battle or event, which took place at the site, where the stone was erected.
