2000- year old homework among exhibits at exhibition in Britain

Experts have found out that the feeling of fretting out was not alien even for students who lived 2000 years ago.

A rare copy of a schoolboy's homework, which was written in Ancient Egypt, can be seen at the exhibition in the British library. According to experts, the child who had to do this job, due to mistakes had to write his homework again and again.

The exhibition also provides information about the 5000-year history of writing. Among the lots are the ancient Egyptian limestone stele, which was recently identified as the oldest in the library collection; the curved pen of Alfred Tennyson; and the telegram of the playwright John Osborne to theatrical criticism.

The exhibition argues that writing and writing instruments have always changed, and that fears that handwriting will become a lost art are not something new.
