Have you ever seen an interesting script on an artefact in a museum and wondered what language it is or what it says? Now you can find out as Professor John Coleman from the University of Oxford brings these lost languages back to life with a range of objects in the Ashmolean Museum.
From childcare instructions and recipes to curses, the deciphered text provides an intriguing insight into classics, archaeology, and what it was like to be human thousands of years ago.
