900 B.C. or ear­li­er, writing system discovered



A pre­vi­ously un­known writ­ing sys­tem, with symbols that tend to look like pineapples, possibly the ear­li­est example from the New World, has been found on a stone block in Ver­a­cruz, Mex­i­co. Dating from about 900 B.C. (400 years be­fore writ­ing was considered to have first ap­peared in the Americas) it seems to be from the an­cient Ol­mec civ­i­li­za­tion and could even con­tain po­et­ry!
