The Rosetta Stone (203 BC) is one of the British Museum’s proudest exhibits. Found at Rosetta now Rashid in the Nile Delta by Napoleon’s soldiers in 1799, it contained the key to the deciphering of hieroglyphics, the language of the ancient Egyptians. On the stone are three scripts: the bottom section is in Greek; the center in demoticv(popular script originated in 700-600 BC and widely used for the next thousand years); and the top in hieroglyphics. Rosetta Stone Bookends are an adaptation sculpted by our artists from this ancient masterpiece.
