Who Invented the Alphabet?
Smithsonian article. Travel back in space
and time to the Sinai in 4,000 BC!
"Centuries before Moses wandered in the
'great and terrible wilderness' of the Sinai
Peninsula, this triangle of desert wedged between
Africa and Asia attracted speculators, drawn by rich
mineral deposits hidden in the rocks.
And it was on one of these expeditions, around 4,000
years ago, that some mysterious person or group took
a bold step that, in retrospect, was truly revolutionary.
Scratched on the wall of a mine is the very first attempt
at something we use every day: the alphabet."
Another site argues that Egyptian scribes invented
this writing to communicate with the miners from
Canaan who came to the turquoise mines, and it has
examples of the alphabets.

"The chalk was formed in the Late Cretaceous epoch,
between 66 and 100 million years ago, when the area was

34 million years!

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am the newest Brittany here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lily and I are American Bittanies and are
both South Dakota natives. When we're not helping out
on the site, we patrol the outdoors, chase rabbits and
squirrels, woof at kids at the schoolyard, rack out on
the beds, ask for treats, and hang out with our peeps!
