Proto-greek

Diagrammatic workcharts created by Michael Ventris while decoding the Linear B tablets (1951–53). This is a combo syllabic-ideogram system of graphic annotation that he proved to be Greek, as it existed some 600 years before the appearance of the Greek alphabet. Ventris was trained as an architect at the AA and died in a car crash at age 34, just a few years after breaking the code.
