Archeologists Find Bone with Inscriptions in Glagolitic and Cyrillic Alphabet

A fragment of an animal bone with inscriptions in Cyrillics and the Glagolitic alphabet has been found by archeologists in the 11th century layers in Veliky Novgorod.

      “This find is unique for the fact that there are letters in Cyrillics on one side and in Glagolitic alphabet on the other side. It is an evidence of rather high literacy of ancient Novgorodians. We are waiting for arrival of philology experts who will figure out how intelligent the text is” - the Novgorod Memorial Estate explains.

      The Glagolitic is one of the first Slavic alphabets. It is considered to have been created by the Slavic educator Constantine of Kostenets.
