Ogham — pronounced "o’-hem" — was employed throughout Ireland from 200 to 400 A.D. It was a "stone-on-stone" technology, according to the Conways, with the country's inhabitants using rocks to carve symbols into a stone tablet in order to record and transfer information..
Tonight's talk is free and open to the public.
The Irish History Round Table meets on the third Tuesday of each month at The Knights of Saint Patrick Hall beginning at 7:30 p.m.
