Description
Used in Ireland and Anglo-Saxon England, this script -- with its funky Old English letterforms -- can be a challenge to decipher. We'll spend a little time decoding a short text from The Book of Deer, dated to the first half of the 10th century CE. Hopefully, even if you aren’t inspired to calligraph a scroll with this script, you’ll learn a few pointers about how to examine any script.
