World'd Biggest Cuneiform Script On Clay Tablet In Kayseri

The Greater Municipality of central Anatolian province of Kayseri has erected the world's biggest cuneiform script on clay tablet at the Kicikapi square of Kayseri.

The Kayseri tablet consists of cuneiform writing utilized by the Assyrians 4,000 years ago.

The tablet has dimensions of 3.3 x 2.2 meters.

The bottom portion of the tablet has Turkish translation.

To date, archeologists have discovered over 20,000 tablets with cuneiform scripts from the Assyrian era in excavations at Kultepe, Kayseri.

Wow, that's impressive! Oddly enough, we studied the Sumerians and cuneiform in our homeschool lessons today, which is why your title caught my eye.
