Early Writing in Egypt and Mesopotamia

The Ian Potter Museum of the University of Melbourne will be exhibiting 18 pieces from the Australian Institute of Archaeology, Melbourne. The exhibition "will illustrate different scripts and early uses of writing (the doings of kings, records of produce, official expenditure, names of troops, a land transaction, property titles) in a variety of materials (stone and ceramic tablets, linen, vellum and papyrus fragments)".
