Publisher Comments:

Gain insights into a vanished world with this unique look at powerful Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Barry Kemp presents one hundred of the Egyptian hieroglyphs, their pronunciations, their history, and meanings, revealing aspects of day-to-day life in ancient Egypt.

Kemp explains the myriad meanings behind symbols for physical objects such as“Su” and“Serpent” and concepts such as“Trut” and“to love” building a picture of the historical and mythological references that were the cornerstones of Egyptian thought.
