Signs of Writing - Scribal Culture in Ancient Egypt: A private view and lecture from the British Museum

'Writing for Eternity: Decoding ancient Egypt' tells the story of a multi-cultural socienty in which indigenous and foreign languages co-existed. Deciphering these scripts has allowed scholars to start solving mysteries of this ancient civilisation.

This lecture will elaborate on the concept of the exhibitionand provide background on the principles by which the Ancient Egyptions made their langauge visible.
