Also known as Late Roman or Early Christian letters, Uncial scripts were originally developed by Greek and Latin scribes and flourished around 400-800 AD and quickly spread, in one form or another, across Europe and North Africa.

The alphabet is carved into a piece of Purbeck Pond Freestone, a material very similar in appearance to Portland stone but considerably harder, and which is only found in one small quarry at St Aldehelm’s Head in the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset; a most beautiful, ancient and remote location.
