Presented By: Helena Tomas

Archaeologist and language expert Helena Tomas wants to do the incredible: She wants to decipher the worlds most ancient language Linear A.  In this ground breaking talk Helena takes us on a trip back to ancient Greece to retell the stories the Minoan Civilization which used the Linear A language, a language that is the earliest European script. Watch as she describes how Linear B was composed and how she hopes to be able to crack the code that is Linear A by using principles from the original Linear B Rosetta Stones.  Make sure to watch this talk and find out what Helena’s favourite hobby is.
