Proto-writing

Proto-writing consists of visible marks communicating limited information.[1] Such systems emerged from earlier traditions of symbol systems in the early Neolithic, as early as the 7th millennium BC in China. They used ideographic or early mnemonic symbols or both to represent a limited number of concepts, in contrast to true writing systems, which record the language of the writer.[2]
