‘World’s Oldest Writing’ Discovered on 7,000-Year-Old Ceramic – Hutton Pulitzer #GoXplrr 

A ceramic fragment dating back to 5,000 BC with what might be “the world’s oldest writing” has been discovered in a previously unknown Chalcolithic (Aeneolithic, Copper Age) settlement found underneath the Ancient Roman road station Ad Putea near the town of Riben, Dolma Mitropoliya Municipality, Pleven District, in Northern Bulgaria.

The archaeological excavations of the Ancient Roman road station Ad Putea have been led by archaeologist Assoc. Prof. Sergey Torbatov from the National Institute and Museum of Archaeology, who is, respectively, an expert inRoman archaeology.

However, during the 2016 digs in the Roman fortress near Riben the researchers have reached a settlement from the Chalcolithic, and have stumbled upon the ceramic item seemingly featuring pictographic or pre-alphabetic writing.
