A Timeline for Handwriting Development

The BBC have created a timeline that spans "from tablet to tablet" and describes the history of handwriting from 8000BC to 2015. 

"Handwriting – one of mankind’s greatest inventions – has quite literally written the future by allowing us to pass on ideas from one generation to the next. Today it's hard to imagine how society could have advanced without it. On paper it doesn’t sound as if writing has come all that far from its primitive beginnings, but the tools we have used have changed considerably and today’s high tech tablets are completely different to the stone slabs of the ancient world."
