WRITING SYSTEMS AND RECORD KEEPING
Transcript of WRITING SYSTEMS AND RECORD KEEPING
The Phoenician Alphabet has impacted many languages that are still used today.
The Greek Alphabet is still used in modern day Greece.
The Aramaic Alphabet originated in approximately 700 BCE
Egyptian Hieroglyphics; etched into a wall in Ancient Egypt.
Egyptian Hieroglyphics; found in King Tutankhamen's tomb
Hieroglyphics written on Papyrus, a coarse paper-like material made of reeds from along the Nile River.
Ancient Hieroglyphics are based upon pictures which convey a story.
Hieroglyphics and the Alphabets are used to convey stories, record information, and communicate with others.
The alphabets were more widely spread because of the Phoenicians developing an alphabet earlier than many countries, and their expansive trade routes.
Both of these languages are direct causes of us being able to convey information from these times from such a long time ago; because of the information being recorded.
