Experts Cracking Oldest Undeciphered Language on 5,000-year-old tablets
Experts trying to crack the world’s oldest undeciphered language say they are close to making a breakthrough that could unlock a large cache of knowledge from the ancient world. The academics are using a high-tech imaging device to scan clay tablets and capture writing in the proto-Elamite language, which was used in what is now southwestern Iran between 3200BC and 2900BC, reports the BBC, which describes the project as “Indiana Jones with software.” The images will be made available online to give other academics a chance to decipher the ancient language.
