Cuneiform tablet at the Fox Talbot Museum, United Kingdom

Henry Talbot was one of the first to translate Assyrian cuneiform writing and this example is in the museum at Lacock Abbey. It is also home to the historic Fenton Collection - that has been transferred from the British Film Institute to the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock, Britain's birthplace of photography. The collection contains hundreds of cameras, optical devices and toys from the eighteenth century to the late 1980s as well as nearly 3,500 photographic images ranging from the earliest processes through to the first part of the twentieth century.
