Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » If you have ever stood before an ancient Egyptian monument and wondered what the hieroglyphs could possibly mean, then this is the book for you. Aimed at those with no previous knowledge of the language of the Pharaohs, it is a clear, practical and enthusiastic guide, complete with exercises and a vocabulary list. By the end of it, you will be able to offer sacrifices to Osiris in phrases the god might have understood, and know how to complain in Egyptian if your goose has been overcooked. Published by the British Museum Press, this is worthy of the institution which holds the Rosetta Stone. (Kirkus UK)
