Writing in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean

(Tuesday) (Wednesday)

Discover a variety of ancient writing systems used in the eastern Mediterranean, including a famous bilingual inscription from Idalion, Cyprus. The ancient script of Linear B, Europe’s earliest comprehensible writing system, can also be seen on display in the Museum’s Codebreakers and Groundbreakers exhibition (until 4 February).

This display is the result of a collaboration between The Fitzwilliam Museum, The British Museum, and the research project: Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems (CREWS).
