inscriptions and Sumerian Proto-Cuneiform, but also with Egyptian Hieroglyphics and Dravidian

Malayalam. We had actually discovered an unknown inscription made up of parts of known

inscriptions from several ancient languages, such as those already mentioned. This unknown

inscription, which was very akin to Dravidian Indian Malayalam writing system, was found, not

only on the monoliths, but especially on the Igbo-Ukwu archaeological  finds made by British

archaeologist Thurstan Shaw in the 1950s5. In fact it was thanks to matching inscriptions/

symbols which we found both on the Igbo Ukwu bronzes and on the monoliths that we were able

to break the code of the monoliths. This implied that the monoliths and the bronzes of Igbo

Ukwu might have a common origin/culture or range of meanings.

Our studies revealed that one particular form of writing found on the bronzes of Igbo

Ukwu involves using the curves of a serpent to form letters. This form of orthography was

known in very early times in India, and was called Snake Science 6. It was also known that the

Phoenicians were taught Snake Science writing by Thoth, the Egyptian god of writing, and that

the most basic letters of the Phoenician alphabet (the mother of the Greek Alphabet) were written

in the form of the curves of a serpent, e.g. the Phoenician letter theth, which stands for the name

of Thoth and for his sacred number – nine – is written like a serpent curling itself up. These

discoveries raise questions as to the link between Igbo Ukwu and Egypt as well as with India.

The presence of elements from the Indian Malayalam, Phoenician and Egyptian elements and

writing systems in Igbo-Ukwu and on the monoliths, draw an undeniable connection between

ancient Nigeria and India, Phoenicia, the Middle East and with Thoth’s Egypt.

This discovery  began to open a new perspective on African history, providing a window

into the question posed by Thurstan Shaw, the British archaeologist who excavated Igbo Ukwu
