An 800 piece jigsaw puzzle inspired by the Rosetta Stone.

The jigsaw pieces have been printed to replicate the grey colour and texture of the Rosetta Stone as seen on the back of the box. This is so that the puzzle retains authenticity to the original artefact.

The Rosetta stone was discovered in 1799 by French soldiers in the village of el-Rashid (Rosetta). By this time knowledge of the ancient Egyptian scripts had been lost for over 1,000 years. 

The stone contains a text in three different languages and scripts. The known Ancient Greek text at the bottom of the stone helped scholars decipher the Ancient Egyptian scripts, the middle one in cursive Demotic and the top one in hieroglyphs. The grey granitoid stone is incomplete.
