The Alphabet

The alphabet started around  2000 BC because of the Egiptians necessety to communicate with their slaves.
The hieroglyphics were too complicated and hard to learn which became a problem at the time; each idea and word had symbols that only few Egyptians knew how to write and read. 
Many linguists believe that our modern alphabet is a simplified version of these hieroglyphics which are based on sounds, they were passed on to other cultures by slaves and Persians as they returned home.
