Event description
Journey to ancient Egypt without leaving your home, with u3a Subject Advisor for Egyptology, Neil Stevenson

About this event

Following the success of his previous presentations, Neil brings u3a members another fascinating glimpse into ancient Egyptian history.

In this talk we will look at how, after 1500 years, hieroglyphs were finally deciphered. I will explain the nature of hieroglyphs and how we translate them. We will explore how you can learn to read hieroglyphs for yourself

This presentation is intended for any u3a member interested in Egyptology. No prior knowledge is required.
