About the Rosetta Stone:
Soldiers in Napoleon's army discovered the Rosetta Stone in 1799 while digging the foundations of an addition to a fort near the town of el-Rashid (Rosetta). Exhibited in the British Museum since 1802, the Rosetta Stone was the key to unlocking the mystery of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the knowledge of which was thought to have been lost forever. In the early years of the nineteenth century, scholars were able to use the Greek inscription on the Stone as the key to decipher the hieroglyph text.
A handsome gift inspired by ancient history.
