WRITING From The PAST



How close are these languages?


Linear B has been deciphered and translated by 1952 by Michael Ventris.  It consists of 90 syllable signs not-yet-known number of pictorial signs.  Each syllable represents either a vowel or an open syllable (consonant-vowel).


Study of the Pylos tablets yields a wealth of information about the end of the Bronze Age at that Palace society.                                       

 

Surely if indeed Linear Elamite has been decoded at last it will open a whole new world of information about that past.


TOday, 1 September 2022, drought revealed Bronze Age MIttani City in today’s Iran: and a cuneiform letter was found in its original envelope.  So far it has not been translated.

WRITING FROM THE PAST.


What is this writing? What does it say? what do these symbols mean? Can you translate?
