Clog Almanac

This page lists of the various symbols in the Clog Almanac group.

The clog almanac was originally a Scandinavian creation that was later brought to England. A "clog" referred to a four-sided piece of material (usually wood but could also be bone, horn or metal), and in the case of the almanac, this object was carved with runes and other markings indicating calendrical events. These events included festivals such as saint's days and astronomical phenomena such as the solstices.
