Thanks for that. It seems to confirm what I have been finding on various
sites. It's so interesting to see the progression of language. I think we
underestimate the capabilities of ancient civilisations more than we would
care to admit. I believe that more cultural interchange went on than anyone
has yet discovered. Also earlier than anyone currently believes. Research is
finding new links between ancient civilisations all the time.
