Caption

Evolution of Cuneiform writing from 3000BC to 1000BC. Cuneiform is the earliest known writing system. It began as a pictograph system used by the Summerians and consisted of wedge-shaped characters. As the script spread and evolved it became more cursive and the number of characters used was refined. By 1000 BC it had evolved from a pictograph system to a phonetic system.
