Before the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, Egyptian hieroglyphics were funny looking drawings with meaning. The Rosetta Stone opened the door to the rich, fascinating and largely unkwn history of Ancient Egypt. E. A. Wallis Budge's, The Rosetta Stone is loved, hated, but never igred. Budge was a ground breaker in understanding and discovering the early Egyptian culture, religions and myths. In this work, he provides a clear, dynamic and often debated understanding of the Rosetta Stone. This is a must read book for anyone who has a love of the ancient Egyptian mysteries.
