I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:
Dictionary of dead language complete after 90 years – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-13715296
This is old news, dating back to June 2011. I still find it fascinating, though.
Sometimes, it’s as if scientific breakthrough today is a regurgitation of ancient news, dating back to pre- ancient Egypt. I ask myself if we ever were the cavemen that some claim. With the Assyrian language brought into context, we are now that much further back into time and still appearing as smart, if not smarter than we are now.
