This Isidor fragment from the middle of the 7th century CE shows how the Irish introduced capital letters at the beginnings of paragraphs, the separation of words from each other, and interpunction into writing; all innovations we still use every day. 4 fragments, c. 6 × 6 / 9 × 4 / 5 × 11.5 / 4.5 × 11 cm
