A brass pendant necklace with a design inspired by the Rosetta Stone.

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

This necklace is made in the UK and is finished with a gold-plated brass chain. The design features sections of the scripts found on the Rosetta Stone in gold-coloured text.

Soldiers in Napoleon’s army discovered the Rosetta Stone in 1799 while digging the foundations of an addition to a fort near the town of el-Rashid (Rosetta). Exhibited in the British Museum since 1802, the Rosetta Stone was the key to unlocking the ability to read and translate ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. The Stone contains the same decree in three different scripts, and scholars were able to use the Greek and Egyptian Demotic sections to decipher the ancient hieroglyphs. The text contains a decree passed by priests in 196 BC to honour King Ptolemy V for his services to Egypt.

A stylish gift for a language lover.
