    In the Ancient Near East, Clay Tablets were used as a writing medium, especially for writing in cuneiform, throughout the Bronze Age and well into the Iron Age. This means of communicating was used for over 3000 years in fifteen different languages. Sumerians, Babylonians and Eblaites all had their own clay tablet libraries

In the history of art, prehistoric art is all art produced in preliterate, prehistorical cultures beginning somewhere in very late geological history, and generally continuing until that culture either develops writing or other methods of record-keeping, or makes significant contact with another culture that has.
    Body Art makes some record of major historical events.

    Rock Carving

    Rock Carving
    Rock art is a rather vague term which denotes prehistoric man-made markings on natural stone.

    The beginning of human communication dates back to ancient cave paintings, drawn maps, and writing
  • Industrial age Electric Telegraph

    Industrial age Electric Telegraph
    Electric Telegraph uses electric signals to send communication via radio or line. This was used as a communication of people but only inside the same country.
  • Type writer

  • Modern Typewriter

    Modern Typewriter
    Christopher Scholes invented the first practical and modern typewriter during the 1867s. This was the improvement of the old typewritter but the function of it is similar. It is used by the editors and reporters to spread informations to the people living inside the country.
  • Telephone

    The first telephone invented by Alexander Graham Bell. This device allowed people to communicate with other people living in a longer distance. This made communication easier between business men during the Industrial Revolution
  • Phonograph

    Phonograph was first invented by Thomas Alfa Edison. This tool was used for communication before the telephone was invented. People were amazed by how they can hear a dead man's voice who was thought to be gone forever only by this simple tool.
  • Printing Press

    Printing Press
    A printing press is a device for applying pressure to an inked surface resting upon a print medium (such as paper or cloth), thereby transferring the ink. Typically used for texts, the invention and spread of the printing press was one of the most influential events in the second millennium
  • Tape recorder

    Tape recorder
    An audio tape recorder, tape deck or tape machine is an analog audio storage device that records and plays back sounds, including articulated voices, usually using magnetic tape, either wound on a reel or in a cassette, for storage. In its present-day form, it records a fluctuating signal by moving the tape across a tape head that polarizes the magnetic domains in the tape in proportion to the audio signal. Tape-recording devices include reel-to-reel tape deck and the cassette deck.
  • Newspaper

    A newspaper is a serial publication containing news about current events, other informative articles about politics, sports, arts, and so on, and advertising. A newspaper is usually, but not exclusively, printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint.

They are generally financed by advertising, by a purchase price, by prepaid subscriptions, or a combination of the three.
  • Radio

    Radio is a way to send electromagnetic signals over a long distance, to deliver information from one place to another. A machine that sends radio signals is called a transmitter, while a machine that "picks up" the signals is called a receiver. A machine that does both jobs is a "transceiver"
  • Television

    A television is a machine with a screen. Televisions receive broadcast signals and turn them into pictures and sound.
  • Computer

    A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out an arbitrary set of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. The ability of computers to follow generalized sequences of operations, called programs, enable them to perform a wide range of tasks.
  • Digital Books

    Digital Books
    An electronic book (or e-book) is a book publication made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices. Although sometimes defined as "an electronic version of a printed book", some e-books exist without a printed equivalent.
  • Cellphone

    A portable usually cordless telephone for use in a cellular system. It is also a a portable telephone that connects to other telephones by radio through a system of transmitters each of which covers a limited geographical area
  • WIFI

    Wi-Fi is a way of connecting to a computer network using radio waves instead of wires.
  • Smartphone

    A smartphone is a mobile phone that can do more than other phones. They work as a computer but are mobile devices small enough to fit in a user's hand.
  • Social Media

    Social Media
