Many undeciphered writing systems exist from several thousand years ago. The difficulty in deciphering these systems arose from a lack of known language descendants or from the languages being entirely isolated, or from insufficient examples of text discovered on ancient Stele or monoliths. Often the question arose as to whether the symbols uncovered constituted a writing system at all.
Linear A and Cretan hieroglyphs are both believed to be an example of the Minoan language. Several words have been decoded from the scripts, but no definite conclusions on the meanings of the words have been made.
Some researchers have claimed to being able to decipher certain writing systems ,however many of these claims have not been widely accepted within the scientific community. Within these pages are featured many ancient lithic evidence and obscure writing systems and the research of cryptologists ,Alice Kober,Michael Ventris,and John Chadwick.
