3100 B.C.E. -The appearance of writing and record keeping appeared in Egypt.  Evidence of writing was first used sparingly and there was no evidence of extended text.  It is believed that early hieroglyphics where symbols used in economic transactions.  Later symbols where created to have sounds that allows for longer written texts. 

This is a key event in media history was the begging presence of writing.  Archeologist where able to study the life, history, and culture of Ancient Egyptians there their record keeping of hieroglyphics.  It was because of the Rosetta Stone, which is written in hieroglyphics and greek, that archeologists were able to translate other works of hieroglyphics.  Without this the history of this civilization would be lost to future generations.
