Archaeologists have discovered remnants of a forgotten language.
Documents with unknown markings were unearthed during excavations of the lost city of Melbourne, Australia.
‘The manuscripts were hidden in the basement, likely to avoid destruction during the purges of the Third Dark Age,’ reported Professor Henry Spires.
The writing, which is composed of lines and dots, ‘does not resemble any known language.’
The documents were discovered next to an unfamiliar machine, although it is unclear if there is any connection.
‘The machine appears to have no practical use’, said Professor Spires, ‘although it does make noise when certain parts are pressed.’
