Activity Sheet: Ogham Code

Discover where in Ireland Ogham is found and write your own message on an Ogham Stone

Ogham writing is the earliest form of writing found in Ireland. Download and print out this activity sheet to learn more about Ogham and use it to write your own Ogham inscription. To find out more about Early Medieval Ireland and Ogham Stones take a look at the Museum's Treasury exhibition. 

When you have created your Ogham Stone, why not let us know how you got on by emailing or post a photo online through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #MuseumAtHome.

This activity sheet can be used as an at home activity for children and families, or printed off and used as part of your visit to the Treasury exhibition. Once you have created your Ogham stone, why not see if you can find all the words in our Early Medieval Ireland wordsearch. 

This activity is designed for children aged 7-12 years old and is curriculum linked to the SESE History Curriculum. This can be completed at home, as a family activity, or used by Primary school teachers and students.
