« back to classes page
If you like challenge you can try yourself in learning (a bit of) ancient script and language and you will see it is possible. Old Persian (ancestor of Modern Farsi) is one of the languages of the magnificent (2500 years old) trilingual cuneiform inscription on Mount Behistun (western Iran) engraved by the order of  the Persian king Darius the Great (522-486 BCE). It is the decipherment of the Old Persian cuneiform texts that led to decoding of other cuneiform writings – Elamite, Babylonian, Sumerian.  A minimum of 6 students is required for this class to run.
