WRITING AND SCRIPT - A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION

WRITING AND SCRIPT - A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION

Without writing, there would be no records, no history, no books, and no emails. Writing is an integral and essential part of our lives; but when did it start? Why do we all write differently and how did writing develop into what we use today? All of these questions are answered in this 'Very Short Introduction'. Starting with the origins of writing five thousand years ago, with cuneiform and Egyptian hieroglyphs, Andrew Robinson explains how these early forms of writing developed into hundreds of scripts including the Roman alphabet and the Chinese characters.
