Ancient Scripts

Ancient Scripts: A compendium of world-wide writing systems from prehistory to today is a very helpful site for understanding the development of and relationships between ancient languages and their writing systems. The author, Lawrence Lo, acknowledges that he is not a linguist, but this is a passionate hobby for him. He has done a great job as far as I can tell. Note the sections on writing systems, phonetics, and historical linguistics as well as a journal, game(s), downloads, reference, and a large collection of links. [HT: Scribal Practices]
