Aremarkable artifact has been found by a team of archaeologists.
The artifact which resembles a modern day cellphone was reportedly found few years ago by archaeologists digging in a city in the Austrian state of Salzburg.
Stories filled the internet with speculation the object could even be proof of time travel.
The tablet was dated to around the 13th century BCE.
By that time, the Sumerian writing style – usually known as cuneiform – had already been around for a few thousand years.
Editorial on the channel goes on to say:
“Cuneiform tablets aren’t unusual – an estimated two million have been excavated. The language was a mystery until the 19th century when its code was deciphered.”
Cuneiform was one of the first systems of writing developed by the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia around 3,500BC to 3,000 BC.
Conspiracy website tothedeathmedia.com reported: “According to reports, during archaeological excavations at Fuschl am See, (in Salzburg), Austria, researchers unearthed a mysterious artefact from the thirteenth century with cuneiform writing that strangely resembles a cell phone.
“This type of writing is typically found in modern-day Iran or Iraq (ancient Mesopotamia).
