A miniature scroll of Egyptian papyrus (measures approximately 8cm x 14cm). <br> <br> Papyrus is first known to have been used in ancient Egypt (at least as far back as the First Dynasty), but it was also used throughout the Mediterranean region and in Kingdom of Kush. Ancient Egyptians used this plant as a writing material and for boats, mattresses, mats, rope, sandals, and baskets. <br> <br> Ideal as a gift, the papyrus is suitable for writing or as a historical display for your desk or home.

A blank scroll of Egyptian papyrus paper.

The first use of papyrus paper is believed to have taken place around 4000 BC. The ancient Egyptians kept the technology of papyrus-making secret, enabling them to hold the monopoly on its production.

The raw material of papyrus paper comes from the plant Cyperus papyrus. The plant grew along the banks of the Nile and provided the Egyptians with a versatile raw material. Papyrus was used for the manufacture of boats, ropes and baskets, but its singular most valuable product was the papyrus paper. Not only was this Egypt’s greatest export, but it revolutionised the way that valuable information was recorded.

Ideal as a fun gift, this papyrus is perfect for practicing ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs on.
