Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Possible Ancient Script

Subject: Possible Ancient Script

Notice: My name is Rob Nicholson. Several years ago I came across what appears to be an ancient script carved in rock at the top of a mountain in the Fraser Canyon section on B.C.
I have done a bit of research on my own but can not identify the script although there does appear to be symbols from several different languages.
I was wondering if someone would be willing to help me possibly identify the script or ad some insight into the possible origins.
I will have to send jpg attachments of the photos of the script to anyone interested.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
