Learning how to decipher hieroglyphs is most fascinating when the language is framed in context. With this original and accessible book, Bill Manley has created the first guide to reading hieroglyphs that begins with Egyptian monuments themselves, and then offers a step-by-step approach to interpreting the information on the inscriptions.
Manley reveals the world of the ancient Egyptians as he explores their views on life and death, Egypt and the outside world, humanity and the divine. Using this context as a base—along with full translations, photographs, and line drawings—he offers clear explanations of texts found on some 30 artifacts ranging from coffins to stelae to obelisks across a 2,000-year span.
