Our partners at the University of Lewisham department of physical anthropology and archaeology (Marsala campus) have again come up with what may be a world-first.
In a statement released today the department’s spokesperson concludes:
‘This cuneiform clay tablet (approx 11cmx9cm) lay in storage for decades before a research student stumbled upon a box in a far corner of the library stacks. Its source is yet to be verified but it is evidently of the period c3200BCE. The tablet shows in the top section one character that is clearly a Rocket Ship of some form or another. As yet experts have been unable to unlock the key to this symbol.
However, the remaining text reads: “…amazing rocket ship bear witness to this remark[…] machine come among [us].”
