  3. 3. Writing The Mesopotamians invented the world’s first system of writing. Their first form of writing was pictograms. Pictograms were used to communicate basic information. Even though pictograms were useful, they needed writing, so they developed a form of writing called cuneiform. Cuneiform was invented somewhere around 3,000 B.C. They used cuneiform to keep track of records, communicate with each other, and many other things. There are about 700 symbols in cuneiform. This is a picture of cuneiform written on a stone tablet
