One of the oldest Diaries in the world

Can you guess how far back Diaries have been in use?

Well you maybe surprised to hear a Diary dating back to 2528 BC in the reign of the 4th Dynasty King Khufu, or Orcheops, builder of the Great Pyramid of Giza was found close to the Red sea.

The fragments of the diary (papyri), the oldest ever found in Egypt, is written by Merrer, an old kingdom official involved in the building of the great pyramid.  Though actual details of the pyramid’s construction are scarce, the journal provides a precise account for every working day.

It just goes to show, that even back then, a diary was crucial in getting those important jobs done!
