The Rosetta Stone
The Rosetta Stone is one of the most famous archaeological artifacts in the world. In this course, you will explore the fascinating history of this amazing treasure, first uncovered by French Napoleonic troops in Egypt in 1799, and the race between the French and the British to decipher the mysterious language of the ancient Egyptians. The stone’s true significance lies in the tripartite inscription incised on the stone, each written in a different script- Egyptian hieroglyphics, Egyptian Demotic, and Ancient Greek, which would prove to be the key to solving the puzzle of deciphering ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Instructor Bill McGowan holds an M.A. degree in Latin and Greek from Fordham University in New York City.
