A tentative transliteration and translation of the Buckhorn cave shelter petroglyphs

Michel-Gerald Boutet

The following is put a two part study of ancient Ogham. Along with a brief historical study, Part One explores the difficulties in interpreting and reading Proto-Oghams. A detailed explanation of the workings of this ancient script will also be given. Part Two deals mainly with the first trial reading and interpretation of the Buckhorn cave shelter petroglyphs of Kentucky using the Old Celtic idiom. If this interpretation is correct, a new perspective is open fo the study of European - Amerindian contacts.
