The Mystery of the Danube Script

From the wild and untouched region of the Balkans comes a remarkable story that shatters our knowledge about the origins of civilization.

According to latest scientific findings, the people from the so-called Danube Civilization lived in cities, used copper tools and script thousands of years earlier than any other high culture in the world.

But conservative historians reject the idea of an early civilization in Europe that existed 8,000 years ago. This documentary accompanies a brilliant scientist on his journey to the Danube Valley. Harald Haarmann wants to convince the Mesopotamian scholars. If he discovers the oldest sentence ever written, he will change history!
