Egyptian Hieroglyphs for Complete Beginners
6 weeks - £90
The ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic images are mysterious and intriguing, but they are not as hard as they look to decipher! This course introduces you to the basics of this ancient Egyptian form of communication that is seen on so many artefacts on display around the world. You will learn how to decipher hieroglyphs and you will very quickly be able to read real objects from museums and ancient sites. The course is in workshop format with participants working through material under the guidance of the tutor who will give personal instruction, advice, and encouragement. Later in the year, when the current circumstances with social distancing is behind us, there will be the opportunity to sign up to a tutor-led day of activities in London which will include an extended face to face tutorial in the morning, lunch, and a close reading of some of the artefacts in the British Museum in the afternoon. The set book for this course is How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs. This step-by-step guide is available from Amazon second hand starting at less than £2 and new for around £5. The class size will be strictly limited to ensure that each participant is able to participate fully.
