On the Cover

Petroglyph of a Zebra from the Transvaal, accompanied by an ogam descriptive comment in Libyan Arabic, one of a series of ancient African inscriptions that make use of the ogam consonantal alphabet. 0gam consaine, or "ogam without vowels" occurs in the oldest Irish inscriptions, on the mainland of Europe, in Africa and in North America. It was first recorded from Ireland by Roghan Ruadh ua Suilleabhain, and noted by the Irish lexicographer Padraig Dineen in 1901, 1927 and subsequently overlooked until American examples were recognized in 1975. English archeologists deny the existence of any kind of ogam other than the one variety studied in the nineteenth century.
