History Legacy

When we used to write on clay

I believe clay tablets with what is called “cuneiform” symbols have been found in ancient Sumeria (what is now the Iraq and Iran area) that are 5 or 6 thousand years old. There may also be other archeological findings from other parts of the world, but Sumerian cuneiform is well known. Clay was used because they didn’t have a Staples nearby to go get paper at. Plus, when wet, it was easy to scratch symbols onto, and then when it dried, it was more permanent.
