Jonathan Bard will talk about the Pitt Rivers Museum's case 106A Writing and Communication. Jonathan will start by looking at the problems around writing down a spoken language and how these have been solved in English. He will then go on to look at how other societies have come up with their own solutions, and illustrate these solutions with objects on display in the Pitt Rivers.
