Description
 
Hieroglyphs were an all-powerful force in communicating the messages of Ancient Egyptian culture for over 3,000 years. Far more than a language, they were imbued with their own special magical symbolism & were used in tombs & ceremonies to communicate with the gods. They hold the key to unlocking many of the secrets of this fascinating civilization, & give us an intriguing insight into the minds of the Ancient Egyptians -- their beliefs, hopes, & dreams. Uncovering previously neglected areas of this absorbing story, Wilson emphasizes the origins of the script, its continuing translation after the decipherment by Champollion, the use of cryptography, & the powerful fascination hieroglyphs still hold for us today.
