When cuneiform was cracked, it gave us some astonishing insights into the ancient world.

Thanks, Bill, that was an interesting segment. I studied ancient history in high school and it was very enjoyable and enlightening. We like to think we're so advanced but we owe so much to the ancient peoples. The part about the Austrian project was interesting. Our data is transient but theirs lasted millennia.
