When we used to write on clay…

The cuneiform script is the earliest known form of written expression​. Created by the Sumerians from ca. 3000 BC, cuneiform writing began as a system of pictograph​s. Over time, the pictorial representa​tions became simplified and more abstract.

Cuneiforms were written on clay tablets, on which symbols were drawn with a blunt reed for a stylus. The impression​s left by the stylus were wedge shaped, thus giving rise to the name cuneiform (“wedge shaped”).
