Origins of the Alphabets - Introduction to Archaeology.
This book describes the development of the alphabet in ancient times. The alphabet was introduced by the Semites; in fact it was primarily a Semetic method of writing. The Canaanites developed the first alphabet in the middle of the 2nd millenium B.C; gradually other Semetic peoples and ancient Greeks learned this way of writing. Each nation developed its own independent script basing itself on the Canaanite prototype.
