The Key to Understanding the Ancient Language

The Rosetta Stone

Ancient Egypt was conquered by many of its neighbors including the Greeks during Alexander the Great’s conquest. Because of this the culture and the society was forced to learn and adopt the culture of their conquerors. This lead for the Egyptians to forget how to read and write in hieroglyphs.
