We are excited to announce the launch of our free teaching materials on Writing in the Ancient World, which includes teaching packs on five writing systems, cartoons and ideas for play sessions. They were designed with age 8-11 children in mind (i.e. roughly Key Stage 2 in the UK), but we hope that they will be useful for a wide range of people and will reach an international audience. If you are interested in learning more, please click through to the links below.

Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems (the CREWS project) has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 677758).
Writing in the Ancient World (WAW) is sponsored by the Impact Fund of the School of Arts and Humanities, University of Cambridge.
WAW cartoons are by Katie Idle (visit her website here).
