The Info List - Günter Dreyer

Günter Dreyer (born 1943) is an Egyptologist
at the German Archaeological Institute. In southern Egypt, Dreyer discovered records of linen and oil deliveries which have been carbon-dated to between 3300 BCE and 3200 BCE, predating the Dynastic Period. He studied Egyptology, Assyriology, and ancient Near Eastern Archeology at Hamburg University and the Free University of Berlin.[1] In 1998 Dreyer found writing on small ivory labels, he concluded that these challenged the prevailing view that the first people to write were the Sumerians of Mesopotamia
(modern-day Iraq) sometime before 3000 BCE.[2] External links[edit]
