Ogham - The Wisdom of the Trees


In ancient times, our celtic druid ancestors devvised a system, part alphabet, part calendar, able to be carved usingsimple notches onto wood or stone. 

Each character was a number and a letter. Each symbol represents a tree or shrub, around which grew an extensive mythology, stories, the use of each tree for craftwork and medicine, and a divination system similar to the Tarot.
