Mycenaean Tablet Found at Iklaina

A Mycenaean tablet with writing has been found at an archaeological site in Iklaina on the Peloponnesian Peninsula. The tablet has been dated to between 1450 and 1350 B.C., which would make it the oldest known writing found in Europe. The tablet contains Linear B and seems to record financial information. The tablet survives because the clay was baked in a garbage bin fire.
