1.3 The historical study of cuneiform

Now, how did historical study reach the stage where Neugebauer and Sachs could pick up a tablet in a library and translate it so as to provide a fair degree of understanding? As with Egyptian hieroglyphs, cuneiform studies date from the last century. Their equivalent of the Rosetta Stone—a trilingual inscription for which one of the languages could be partially understood—was a sheer rock-face at Behistun in south-western Iran into which a text was carved in three languages, Old Persian,

Effects on humans

The most well-known effect of nitrates on human health is methaemoglobinaemia (met-heem-oh-gloh-bin-eem-ia) or ‘blue baby syndrome’. If large quantities of nitrogen compounds are ingested in drinking water, the ability of the blood to carry oxygen is impaired, causing headache, fatigue, breathing difficulties, diarrhoea and vomiting and, in extreme cases, loss of consciousness and death. This syndrome is quite common in parts of the USA, and the Netherlands, where nitrogen levels are very

This how SADEPIG came to being: it is a virtual database regrouping all the information about the monumental epigraphy which date from the Sa?dian period in Mor
