Thousands of museum visitors and holidaymakers wonder at the beautiful and mysterious hieroglyphic inscriptions that appear on so many objects and monuments from ancient Egypt. The hieroglyphic script baffled scholars for centuries, and Egyptologists still study for years to read it fluently. But, with this attractive little book, any readers can easily teach themselves to recognize and identify a selection of commonly used hieroglyphic signs and phrases that they will see on museum objects and at Egyptian sites. Each double page spread contains a detailed, close-up colour illustration of a hieroglyphic sign or phrase with, on the facing page, a translation, a short caption text and a photograph of the object (such as a papyrus, stela, mummy case, or relief) from which the hieroglyphs are taken. The hieroglyphs include individual signs, names of people and places, titles and epithets, numbers and dates, and phrases from prayers and offerings. A perfect gift or souvenir of a museum visit or a holiday.
