| On the left is the Ogham (pronounced "Ohm") alphabet. The Druids,
Britons, Cymry, Picts and the ancient Irish Celts used this form of writing for centuries.
It was used up until about the fifth century CE. It consisted of a vertical line with the
appropriate dots and dashes. The alphabet was named after Ogham, the Celtic god of
literature, who some believe actually created it. It was used on the edges of burial
stones and boundary markers. The surviving examples of ogham are on large standing stones.
There are almost 400 known Ogham inscriptions in Ireland, most of which are located in the
southwest of the country. The ogham alphabet contains twenty letters and is read from the
bottom up. See the
