6th form lecture: history of the Alphabet/writing
Interesting 30-40 minute talk on the origins of writing - what is writing? Why do we need writing? How do writing systems develop? Based on my university studies - an interactive and engaging talk making pupils of English, History and Languages think about what writing really is and how it evolved - particularly good introduction to linguistics for any pupils interested in further study in this are.
