Ogham stones digitized in 3D

The iconic Ogham stones of Ireland are being digitized in 3D using Artec Studio 9 software thanks to the partnership of The Discovery Programme and the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. The stones, bearing the Irish Ogham alphabet, will now be available to view in 3D online. (photos)

The Ogham stones date to at the the 5th century and have been found in various places around Ireland. The project will now allow scholars to study the complete stone, rather than just the inscription.
