What if a Time-Traveler went to Ancient Sumeria (around 3600 BCE) and introduce two important things

-Hundreds of Printing Presses with Sumerian cuneiforms (their alphabets)

-Ten Tons of Paper

-And the knowledge to use and create more of both items


Would humanity progress much faster both technologically and as a civilization?

How would history change?

Multiple Time-Travelers

These are just one-way Time-Travel (Or going from one Universe to an Alternate One)


How long would it take for them to reach the Enlighment?
Um...

Isn't the Enlightenment reliant on Christianity? Specifically the Reformation?

Not really

The emigration of Greek artists and philosophers to Europe (especially Italy) brought a cultural change

One effect is the revival of Roman Art and Philosophy


What I meant by Enlightment is a cultural renaissance in arts, philosophy and science
