Ogham, pronounced "ohm" was used by the Ancient Irish Celts. This form of writing was used from about 600 BC to about 700 AD. The Ogham alphabet contains 20 letters made up of a vertical line with dots and dashes and is read starting from the bottom to the top.
While all surviving traces of Ogham are inscriptions on stone, it was probably inscribed on sticks, stakes and trees. Inscriptions generally take the form of somebody's name and the name of a place and were likely used to mark boundaries.
The existing examples of Ogham are on large standing stones. There are almost 400 known Ogham inscriptions in Ireland.
