Dr. Andrew Byrd Traces The Roots Of Language

The November 22 episode of UK Perspectives will devoted to the fascinating linguistic work of Dr. Andrew Byrd, who has traced language back to its prehistoric roots in what is known as Proto-Indo-European.

This reconstructed language would have been spoken in the northern region of the Black Sea 7,000 years ago. Dr. Byrd’s reading of two fables in Proto-Indo-European can be heard at http://www.archaeology.org/exclusives/articles/1302-proto-indo-european-schleichers-fable
