Report From Archaeological Excavation Site 4006
23 October 2807

Presented within this report are the results of our analysis at the remarkably well-preserved excavation site 4006. As the most available linguistic archaeology expert in attendance, the duty had fallen upon my shoulders to tour the site when several stone slabs covered in unfamiliar glyphs were unearthed. Everyone was understandably excited by these discoveries, as they provided an opportunity for a rare glimpse into the culture and potentially the lifestyles of one of our lost societies from the past.

Unfortunately, the symbols found bore only passing resembelance to what we know of pre-armageddon alphabets. Indeed, the first sample discovered seemed to be written on a strange angle. I have not yet discounted the possibility that perhaps our ancient brethren may have read from bottom right to left up. Should this prove to be the case it shall, of course, mean that a great many decoded artefacts that have been discovered so far will need to be re-translated.

We have not yet ruled out the possibility that this may, in fact, be a crude pictograph. We are basing that supposition on the abstract illustration drawn in sky blue in the upper right of Fig.1. On a side note, we are still attempting to determine from which natural resources our forebearers created such a vivid light blue dye.

Our second find, however, contradicted our intial analyses as it seemed to be much more inline with existing information we possess on turn of the millenia languages. This is quite unusual, as the similarity in materials used indicates that these writings were very likely created in the same time period.

If we refer to existing texts and attempt to match the Romanian alphabet to these glyphs, taking into account potential local twists on fonts, the above text tentatively translates to 'HoBiD viseR Elske Guk'. We have not been able to discover any potential greek or latin bases for this strange message in order to discern its meaning, but if one is to apply conventional wisdom, it is less likely a profound axiom and more likely a name and title. Perhaps our ancient brethren proudly displayed their names and titles upon their abodes much as the cultures in the far north do in our current society.

Our third discovery we believe to almost certainly be a pictograph, however its message remains unclear and its style is abstract.

Only partial headway was achieved in making sense of this pictograph, but in brief I believe the centre symbol to be either an impression of pre-armageddon moon or a representation of archaic drainage systems. The symbol on the lower right, on the other hand, is remarkably similar to earlier impressionist paintings we have discovered of crops and grass, leading me initially to be believe that this may have in fact been a chart for appropriate planting seasons for early millenium agriculturists. Potentially for a nearby plantation owned by the Viser Elske Guk, perhaps?

Truly, the entire site remained baffling, as beyond these telling examples we discovered many more contradictory images and messages that did not conform to any single recognisable alphabet. Until, perchance, I stumbled upon a slab that contained the key to deciphering all the glyphs discovered thus far! A modern Rosetta Stone, if you will. I am quite proud of this discovery, and believe it shall revoluntize modern archaeology.

All mysteries have thus been solved.
