In this amazing SoundCloud record, Andrew Byrd, a archeological linguist, reads a written story using only the vocabulary we are certain existed 6,000 years ago.

The sheep said to the horses: “My heart pains me, seeing a man driving horses.” The horses said: “Listen, sheep, our hearts pain us when we see this: a man, the master, makes the wool of the sheep into a warm garment for himself. And the sheep has no wool.” Having heard this, the sheep fled into the plain.
