Ever wondered what all the signs on Egyptian temples and tombs mean and how to read them? Do Egyptian hieroglyphs write words or sounds? How and when were Egyptian hieroglyphs first deciphered? How do we pronounce and translate hieroglyphs?
The answers to these questions will be addressed in this unique hands-on workshop. Lectures and progressive in-class exercises will teach you the basics of how the Egyptian hieroglyphic writing system and language works and start you on the road to reading simple inscriptions and understanding the concept of writing and language in ancient Egypt. An ideal course for students of archaeology, linguistics, or ancient history.
