A lens cloth featuring a design inspired by the Rosetta Stone - the star object in the British Museum.

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.

The lens cloth is made from a silk microfibre and is suitable for cleaning glasses and sunglasses. The cloth has been specially designed by the Museum's in-house team.
