Laotong or LaoTong (in English: old sames; written: 老同 in Mandarin) is a type of relationship within Chinese culture, which was practised in Hunan, [when?] that bonded two girls together for eternity as kindred sisters.
In 1900, Sir Arthur Evans, at Knossus, on the island of Crete, found 3,000 clay tablets with writing he was never able to decipher. He labelled the writing Linear B, to differentiate from others previously found. In 1952, Michael Ventris, an amateur cryptologist, declare Linear B to be Archaic Greek, indicating the Greek language had a 3,300 year history.
