Liber Linteus Book

We are living in a modern world in the era of
advanced technology and advanced techniques. But,
undoubtedly we come across fascinating ancient
mysteries in the corner of the world that
generates a curiosity to learn more about
mysteries past. There are innumerable
mythological creatures and mysterious ancient
places.

Harry Coumnas, a great historian and archeologist
has a great interest and passion in exploring
mysteries and solving them. At present, he is
tangled with The Linen Book of Zagreb with the
longest text written in the Etruscan language.
This book belongs to the third century B.C.
4
The text is written in language heavily
influenced Latin, which is lost in the present
world. It is extremely uncommon for linen books
to last that long- but Liber Linteus was no
ordinary book.
5
What Harry Coumnas has gathered from that book is
that it appears to be a calendar detailing the
funeral rituals. He also believes that this book
was cut into pieces and used by ancient Egyptians
to wrap a mummy.
6
It was preserved in a good condition, but it was
unstudied for a long period of time. When it was
found, most people saw it simply assumed that the
text was written in Egyptian. He confirms that he
will soon solve this mystery book and the text
written on it.
