Hieroglyphs date back to ancient Egypt as a form of writing, but how do you read them? This full-color booklet briefly discusses the history and evolution of hieroglyphs. The largest portion helps you decode the language. You'll learn about logograms, phonograms, and determinatives; the Egyptian alphabet; and pronunciation of basic hieroglyphs. Two pages include detailed hieroglyphs of 7 of their main gods and 4 Egyptian royalty.
Wonderful for an Egyptian study and also as an introduction to pictorial languages!
