    Inspired of your topic I found this article. I have been walking through that tunnel. What a weird feeling to step down into the water in the darkness and first it was deep. I think it was about 500 meters walking with electric torch. Then you should not have the fear of those kind of places where you can not walk always straight of your lenght. But I was glad I did it ending up to Siloah.

    Big news. Breakthrough in world's oldest undeciphered writing

    The world's oldest undeciphered writing system, which has so far defied attempts to uncover its 5,000-year-old secrets, could be about to be decoded by Oxford University academics. This international research project is already casting light on a lost bronze age middle eastern society where enslaved workers lived on rations close to the starvation level. "I think we are finally on the point of making a breakthrough," says Jacob Dahl, fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford and director of the Ancient World Research Cluster. ...

    This device ... [is] being used to help decode a writing system called proto-Elamite, used between around 3200BC and 2900BC in a region now in the south west of modern Iran. And the Oxford team think that they could be on the brink of understanding this last great remaining cache of undeciphered texts from the ancient world.
