Emojis discovered in egyptian tomb

Previously thought to be a  new sensation, in turns out that Emoji's have been around for longer than we thought.

A team of British archaeologists made the bizarre discovery whilst digging in the remains of a small pyramid just outside of Giza in Egypt.

The discovery occurred inside an ancient crypt which dates back to 3,000BC. A smiley face and a bird Emoji were found on a document lying next to lots of other ancient artifacts.

"We've always known that Egyptian writing used pictures to communicate. However these hieroglyphics appear to show that the Egyptians had a sense of humour similar to our own!" an expert said.
