Talk about some things never changing; here's "Incantation for a Dog Bite" read from millennia old clay tablets by researchers from Cambridge.

Might be just the thing to shout if you're out riding and are chased by a Pharaoh hound.

Wow!!!! Babylonian with a Cambridge accent.

Note Pharoh Hounds are very rare outside of the island of Malta and have nothing to do with ancient Egypt being a "2oth century English fabrication".

Spoken Babylonian is a 21st century English fabrication.
