A well-known important excavation from the ancient city known as Genoa of the Liguria Province, country Italy, European continent, late twentieth century. A major and unique find, extremely well preserved and restored to near original condition. The inscriptions have been deciphered and appear in translation below bearing the date 1986 A.D.

By studying the meaning of the symbols one arrives at a better understanding of the people who lived toward the end of the second millenium, a fairly advanced technological age in which major scientific discoveries were made that, as we know, had an enormous effect on later centuries. A significant aspect of these tablets is that they include practically all major scientific breakthroughs for this period. It is appropriate to note here that the very site of this exhibit was a church and monestary at the time, named Santa Maria di Castello, which had been built in an even earlier period, perhaps the thirteenth century.
