About Egyptian Hieroglyphs For Complete Beginners

Product Description An original and accessible approach to learning hieroglyphs, written by an experienced teacher and author. This is the first guide to reading hieroglyphs that begins with Egyptian monuments themselves. Assuming no knowledge on the part of the reader, it shows how to interpret the information on the inscriptions in a step-by-step journey through the script and language of ancient Egypt. We enter the world of the ancient Egyptians and explore their views on life and death, Egypt and the outside world, humanity and the divine. The book draws on texts found on some thirty artifacts ranging from coffins to stelae to obelisks found in museums in Egypt, America, and Europe, and selected across two thousand years. The texts are then explained clearly, and are supported by full translations, photographs, and line drawings. 49 illustrations Review "A welcome addition to introductory books on hieroglyphs…" ― Choice "An original and accessible approach to learning hieroglyphs, written by an experienced teacher and author." ― The Guardian About the Author Bill Manley is an Egyptologist, university lecturer, museum curator and best-selling author.
