The cuneiform was really hard. It wasn’t showing very good on the clay. I can’t believe that before there were pictures which would have been harder And it would have taken much longer. I think the cuneiform is important to communicate with others, it was the first form of writing. If it didn’t exist then no one would be able to write, not even today. It would have made life harder for us without writing. That’s why it is important to us today.
