The Rosetta stone...
<><><><><><><><><>


For many years translating hieroglyphics had been a virtual impossibility until one day a tablet of stone was found In July 1799, the stone was discovered in the city of Rosetta (modern el Rashid) by French soldiers during Napoleon's invasion of Egypt. Rosetta was located on a tributary of the Nile near the Mediterranean coast east of Alexandria.

A decree written in 3 separate languages had been used : hieroglyphics, demotic and ancient Greek text.

The fact that ancient Greek could be understood meant that the stone could be used to decipher the previous unknown hieroglyphs that had also been used.
