Who developed the earliest writing?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Who developed the earliest writing?       
Who developed the earliest writing? No one knows how the first writing system developed, because no records remain. The earliest known writing was recorded in the form of picture symbols on day tablets by the ancient Sumerians, in around 3500bc.

Hieroglyphics were a system of writing used by the ancient Egyptians, using drawings rather than the shapes we use in modern script. They gradually became more stylized to resemble modern forms of writing. Hieroglyphics were a similar form of picture writing, and the oldest examples date from, around 3000bc. Picture symbols were also used in the ancient Chinese writing that appeared in 1500bc. It is likely that all writing started this way, before shapes and letters were used to indicate sounds.
