Show Notes

Enter the world of Ogham, an ancient Irish script which is still somewhat shrouded in mystery... though over at the Ogham Academy we're doing our best to make it a little clearer each week - be sure to join the mailing list there so you don't miss out! This is a quick introduction to its history and origins, geographical spread, and how to 'translate' modern words and phrases through the Ogham script.
