Replica Rosetta Stone Plaque.
$69.99 inc. GST
The Rosetta Stone has been housed at the British Museum since 1802, and is one of the museum’s best know exhibits. It was discovered in 1799 by which time all knowledge of the Ancient Egyptian language and writing had been lost for over 1000 years; however the stone’s inscription helped scholars to decipher the two Egyptian scripts – one written with hieroglyphs and one in the cursive demotic script – from Greek section at the bottom. The smart gift packaging tells the story of the Rosetta Stone on the reverse.
