The Rosetta Stone was integral to understanding ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Prior to the stone's discovery in 1799, the skill of reading and writing hieroglyphics had disappeared. The original stone displays a decree in three different languages, including hieroglyphics and Greek. The Greek translation was key to deciphering hieroglyphics. The stone is now held at the British Museum in London.
This archaeological treasure doubles as unique decor! This wall hanging is made as an exact replica of the famous Rosetta find and is a compelling accent for any room.
