Upcoming Workshop: How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs

Egyptologist John Sarr will lead two day-long sessions on Egyptian hieroglyphics. The first session will be held on Saturday, Oct. 14th, and will cover how hieroglyphs are used to write in the Ancient Egyptian language and combined to create statements. The second session on Saturday, October 21st, will cover statements which explain what someone is doing in a scene and what someone has done in life, found mainly in tombs and on funerary steles. Both sessions will take place in Cramer Hall, room 287. For more information, please visit the Department of Anthropology’s webpage on the Egyptian Hieroglyph workshops.
