The British Museum
Use these cryptic puzzle pieces to create one of the British Museum’s and Egyptology’s greatest treasures: the Rosetta Stone. Discovered in 1799, the granodiorite block features a decree from 196 BC establishing a temple cult for King Ptolemy V Epiphanes, King of all Egypt. Written in Egyptian hieroglyphs, cursive demotic script and Ancient Greek, the stone was the key to using still-known Greek to decrypt hieroglyphs. While many scholars put together pieces of the language puzzle, French philologist Jean-François Champollion (1790-1832) made the first translations in 1822-24. Pore over this unusual and challenging jigsaw with few traditional, visual clues.
