A pair of cosy women’s cotton socks featuring ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The socks are part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

These socks are made from a cotton blend and fit a UK women’s size 3.5-6.5. The design features striking gold hieroglyphs against a black background.

Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were developed c.3000 BC and were used for formal inscriptions. The alphabet is comprised of a series of symbols and characters, which includes birds, reeds and ankhs. The hieroglyphs were sometimes called ‘The Words of the Gods’ and were mainly used by priests. Although the ability to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs was lost for centuries, they were finally deciphered by Jean-François Champollion in the 19th century, advancing the study of Egyptology immeasurably.

A stylish ancient Egypt-inspired fashion gift.
