Product description

In the present volume, one of the 20th century's foremost Egyptologists tells the fascinating story of the Rosetta Stone - from its discovery during a French military excavation to its enshrinement in the British Museum as one of the great cornerstones of linguistic studies. In addition to an historical account of the Stone's discovery, its acquisition by the British, and the arrival of the Stone in London, Dr. Budge provides a concise and revealing history of the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphics, full original texts and annotated English translations of the decree, and two appendixes containing translations of the stelae of San (Tanis) and Tall al-Maskhutah.
