Exclusive to the British Museum, a snow globe inspired by the Rosetta Stone.

The snow globe features a glass dome and silver glitter encasing a miniature replica of the famous Rosetta Stone. The base is decorated with the scripts from the Stone, and the reverse side features the British Museum logo.

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.

A collectable souvenir of the British Museum.
