Anyone here can read Egyptian hieroglyphs?

Postby Delodephius » Sat 30 May 2009 10:15 pm

Anyone here can read Egyptian hieroglyphs? Or at least suggest where could I find someone that does? I got three short inscriptions I found in some old book on Ancient Egypt I need translated, for my own personal reasons.

While I love Egyptian, and I can read it albeit very slowly, I can try to put you in contact with one of my colleagues who has a PhD in Archeology who can read Hieroglyphics better than me.

The drawings on the left are copies of how the original looked like on the clay tablets. The ones on the right are stylized.
