Ancient papyrus scrolls, lost languages carved into cuneiform--the written word stretches back thousands of years. Inventions such as the printing press, typewriters, and computers are evidence of how far this technology has progressed. Trace its history from primitive to modern times, and learn how our world has been shaped as a result of the desire to communicate via writing.
