Early alphabetic writing in the ancient Near East: the ‘missing link’ from Tel Lachish

A team of archaeologists has discovered an inscribed shard at the site of Tel Lachish, which is located in the Shephelah region in modern-day Israel and is one of the most prominent Bronze and Iron Age sites of the Southern Levant. Dating to the 15th century BCE, the newly-discovered inscription is currently the oldest securely dated alphabetic inscription from the Southern Levant. This shard is one of the earliest examples of early alphabetic writing found in Israel. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/antiquity/article/early-alphabetic-writing-in-the-ancient-near-east-the-missing-link-from-tel-lachish/C73F769B7CF3A7E4E2607958A096B7D8 ..................................................................................... #earth #science #archaeology #education #news
