Jurassic Words: Oracle Bone Script

Oracle bone script (Chinese: 甲骨文) was the form of Chinese characters used on bones in the late 2nd millennium BC. This was the first known form of Chinese writing. The characters are pictographic which means they are more like symbols rather than letters, and can be used as a form of storytelling and art.  Many Chinese characters today originate from Oracle bone script.
