Ancient writing systems
Saturday, 21 May 2016 - Saturday, 21 May 2016
Location: Historical museum (Burgas, 31 Lermontov St.)
Presents 11 writing systems that laid the foundation of the world scripting tradition: Cuneiform, Ancient Egypt and Chinese hieroglyphics, Brahmi, Runic, Phoenician, Greek, Latin and Arabic alphabets. Widely represented are the Bulgarian alphabets Glagolitic and Cyrillic underlying the writing systems of Slavic people.
The appearance of the writing systems is connected with the needs of people to be social: to communicate, trade, send massages, to immortalize important events, to impart knowledge to other people – in a long distance and centuries ahead of time.

Permanent exhibition in the yard of the Historical Museum "Wall of letters"
