<p>A small metal fridge magnet in the shape of the Rosetta Stone - a famous ancient Egyptian artefact in the British Museum. <br /> <br /> The stone is famous as it helped scholars to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphs. By the time the granite stone was discovered in 1799, all knowledge of the ancient Egyptian scripts had been lost for over 1,000 years. <br /> <br /> Inspired by the stone, the magnet is engraved with text in three different ancient Egyptian scripts: hieroglyphic, demotic and Greek. <br /> <br /> Ideal as a small history gift.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a metal fridge magnet in the shape of the Rosetta Stone.

Made from stainless steel, this magnet faithfully replicates the shape and texts of the Stone.

About the Rosetta Stone:

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.

Ideal as a historical souvenir.
