The Hieroglyphs Handbook
Learn to decipher the language of the pharaohs and solve the riddle of the pyramids with The Hieroglyphs Handbook . This is hieroglyphics for beginners; an opportunity for the child on the street to walk into a museum and, using their handbook, translate an Ancient Egyptian inscription from scratch. A visit to the museum will never be the same again and a trip to Egypt will become evenmore of an adventure. The book is divided into three sections: a background history, giving the historical context; a practical section explaining how the language works and is written; and a glossary/phrasebook containing the alphabet and all the essential words and phrases.
