SUMERIAN DICTIONARY PROJECT
The five-thousand-year-old cuneiform writing system used starting around
3200 B.C. by Babylon, Chaldea, and other civilizations of Mesopotamia, is
going online in dictionary, photographic and 3D forms, and a team led by
Sumerian-language expert Steve Tinney of the University of Pennsylvania
Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is translating cuneiform into
English online (http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/~melindag/psdmain.html). The work
is being partly supported by grants from the National Endowment for the
Humanities.
