About Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics:

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 hieroglyphics 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.

This ruler will make an educational gift for children learning about ancient Egyptian history.
