An as yet undeciphered script found on relics from the Indus valley constitutes a genuine written language, a new mathematical analysis suggests.
The finding is the latest chapter in a bitter dispute over the interpretation of "Indus script". This is the name given to a collection of symbols found on artefacts from the Indus valley civilisation, which flourished in what is now eastern Pakistan and western India between 2500 and 1900 BC.
In 2002, a team of linguists and historians argued that the script did not represent language at all, but religious or political imagery.

Some of it looks like lettering, some pictures, is it possible it is BOTH? Like Kanji? Perhaps they are pictures that mean individual words as well! It is really on the fence though, could be either way... though I think picture-script is probably the best answer!
There is some similarity to the Norse runes I noticed (which were also the precursor to Russian modern-day Cyrillic),
and in one of the slideshow there is a swastika, in fact facing both ways. The Nazis were very interested in Norway in many many ways, including for the Viking heritage and runes, and they were also obsessed with the idea of the Aryans, which if Im not mistaken originated from India. Then the SS had expeditions all over the world, including Tibet and the Middle East, Persia, Iceland I think, etc. So did Hitler rip off everything from the Indus valley then? Is there some connection Im not seeing?
