Description: The House of the Ogham Fews was founded 16th December 2019.
Ogham is a medieval language found on many standing stones throughout the Isles, it was used to communicate in Old Irish and Pict. There has been a connection between the Brythonic Bard Talesins - Battle of the Trees, where each tree corresponds to an Ogham character. Latterly romanticised works like Robert Graves - The White Goddess has promoted a seasonal calendar paradigm of Tree Magick that was taken up by the New Age Movement and for divination purpose. Ogham is often referred to as The Celtic Tree alphabet.
The word Fews is the Old Irish for Trees.
The purpose of the order was to support The Overall Domain and Realms Micronation in the situ of the various localities that make up the Realm of Celtica.
This dovetails with the prime purposes of The Domain and Realms, one of which is to be there to Represent members of the magical community. To preserve, obtain and pass on the knowledge of the various cultural and ethnic ancestors who once inhabited the realm.
To journey and obtain experiences of the diverse and often forgotten places within the realm so that those experiences may be made available to the present day. Protection of other practitioners and those old revered locations and the healing of the land and its inhabitants.
