The Riddle of the Rosetta Stone

The Riddle of the Rosetta Stone Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Until the Rosetta Stone was finally translated and the decoding of hieroglyphic writing made possible, much of Egyptian history was lost. The author has done a masterful job of distilling information, citing the highlights, and fitting it all together in an interesting and enlightening look at a puzzling subject." —H. "The social and intellectual history here are fascinating. A handsome, inspiring book." —K.
