Origin of the Bobileth Alphabet

Probably the earliest known pre-Roman writing in the islands of what would become the area of Britain and Scandinavia was a Goidelic alphabet known as Ogham, which was first mentioned in the Book of Ballymote. Goidelic consisted of a number of upright strokes, standing on, suspended from, and crossing one line. Following the Ogham, came the Bobileth or Boibel-Loth alphabet and its derivatives, all preferred to some extent by the Druids in certain areas.
