Bulgaria: Tablet May Have Oldest Writings

Keywords: writing, prehistory, archaeology

"An almost 7,000-year old stone tablet found in Bulgaria bears carvings that might turn out to be one of the world's oldest inscriptions, a prominent Bulgarian archaeologist said. 'These signs are unique and apparently bear a meaning,' Nikolai Ovcharov told a press conference. Ovcharov said he had received the tablet from a private collector who had unearthed it 20 years ago."
