The Celtic Ogham Alphabet is a fascinating and ancient script used during the early medieval period to inscribe the early and Old Irish language.

Comprising a series of lines and notches carved on edges of stones or written on parchment, Ogham is believed to have been created as a cryptic alphabet, possibly by the Irish, to communicate and preserve their language during a time of Roman imperialism.

Each character or "letter" in the Ogham alphabet corresponds to a certain tree or plant, and as such, it is often referred to as the "Celtic Tree Alphabet".

This unique script holds a special place in the study of linguistics and the history of the Celts, offering a glimpse into the cultural and linguistic practices of early medieval Ireland.
