'Man perishes; his corpse turns to dust; all his relatives pass away. But writings make him remembered.' The fascination Ancient Egypt holds in our minds has many sources, but at the heart of it lie hieroglyphics. This extraordinary writing system was for many years seen as the ultimate challenge and puzzle before finally being cracked in the 1820s. Preserved carved in stone or inked on papyri, hieroglyphic writings give a unique insight into an awe-inspiring but also deeply mysterious culture. Toby Wilkinson has translated a rich selection of pieces, ranging from accounts of battles to hymns to stories to royal proclamations. This book is both very enjoyable and an essential resource for anyone wanting to study one of humankind's great civilizations.

Hieroglyphs form some of the oldest writing in the world. The word 'hieroglyph' means 'sacred carvings' in Greek and is the name given to written characters formed by drawings. These drawings can be of people, animals, plants, or many other objects. Numerous ancient cultures used one form or another of hieroglyphs. The Sumerians, Assyrians and Babylonians of the Middle East all used hieroglyphs. So did the Mayans of South America. However, it is the Ancient Egyptians who are most famous for using a form of hieroglyphs for their writing.
