funerary stele, greece, 459 bc (literate cultures)

there is oral culture and literate cultures. alphabet and its development developed the latter. which helps the propagation of myths. early ones are The Hammurabi Code, the eastern tale of Gilgamesh, and developments in navegation, astronomy, geometry, etc.

the shift from spoken to written text is fundamental in the development of science and technology.
