Geocache Description:


"NOT AT ABOVE COORDINATES"


Ancient Egyptian Geocacher

Egyptian Hieroglyphics

The language was developed
about four thousand years before Christ
and there was also a decimal system
of numeration up to a million.
In AD 391 the Byzantine Emperor
Theodosius I closed all pagan
temples throughout the empire which
ended the four thousand year old
tradition of hieroglyphics.
The Ancient Egyptian language was
lost until the discovery of the Rosetta
stone and the work of Jean-Francois
Champollion (1790-1832).
Today, by virtue of the vast quantity
of their hieroglyphics, we understand
more about Egyptian society than
almost all other ancient cultures.


This is the site I used
to figure this out.

and goodies for trade.
Have fun, TopGear
