    How do you think the Rosetta Stone ranks among the greatest finds from the ancient world? 🤔

      @David Egyptian history lasted four millennia. By the death of Cleopatra, (the end of ancient Egypt), thousands of monuments had been lost, and only a handful of priests knew hieroglyphics. Preserving what had always been and always would be was probably very far from their minds.
      The only thing close to that in our English based culture is Stonehenge, whose very meanings have changed over the myriad since it was first dug. But there was no writing when the henge was first dug, and later when the stones were added no writing was added.
      How well have we preserved Camelot and Suttin Hoo in the less than half the time of ancient Egypt?

      @Benson I concur. Very little can equal this, and far fewer could surpass it.
      It helped us unlock hieroglyphics! Without it, Champolian(mssp?) would have been incomplete, never achieving his destiny. (I use hieroglyphics for language, hieroglyphs for the characters).
      I can think of but two things that could surpass this, and both of them are named "Ark".

    I find it amazing that at the time of Alexander the Great , Egyptian Hieroglyphs were a LIVE language. It was a fairly recent event that Egyptian hieroglyphs were lost as a living script.

    This was fascinating--thank you! I had always assumed that the process of deciphering the ancient language was a much simpler effort once the Rosetta Stone was discovered. It's a revelation to know more about the complications and the enormous effort it involved.

      Few things have been omitted in this video. First: Champollion was a linguistic genius. At the age of 18 he was a professor at the equivalent of French high school. Apart from Coptic, he learned few more ancient languages, that were sort of within the family of languages , related to Egyptian in some way. The fact that it took him, the linguistic genius, 20 years to complete the task, shows how difficult, in fact, ancient Egyptian was. It had a difficult grammar and pronunciation, so that was really hard one to crack. Also, the relations to other languages were not as strong as with other languages, that could easily be deciphered.

    I have a slab of basalt as long as this, but half as thick, and it weighs over 1000pounds. This must be far heavier. What a magnificent piece of history, and how fortunate that it was preserved as a building block.

    • SiewHei Lou

      It was not preserved, more the original was destroyed, broken up and the pieces were used to build a wal, to the people who used it this way the stone was only a building material. It was because of the interest in archeology in the academic circle of French and English that the English took the Rosetta Stone back to England, and the scholars deciphered the Rosetta Stone that it became a priceless treasure to the scholars. Without the dedications of those scholars the stone would still be part of a wall, or even crumbled to pieces by the power of elements. The demands and calls to return the Rosetta Stobe is Egypt is only because it is valuable now, otherwise no one cares.

      The gap is something that raises natural questions. However (and I just learned this recently), there were many identical "Rosetta Stones" carved at that time, recording the same story in the same three languages. This video touches (lightly) on this near the beginning, referencing many steles carved and distributed to temples throughout Egypt. THE Rosetta Stone is the first of these to be discovered. I believe as many as 40 have been found since then. So, between the many stones, they have a complete text.

      Napoleon took artists, scholars, and engineers to Egypt, his soldiers stopped in their tracks when they first set eyes upon the pyramids. They made copies of hieroglyphs and took back many artefacts, I guess a lot were saved as well although nowadays they would be regarded as stolen

    It also proves the great importance of scholars/scientists communicating with each other around the world 🌎. There should be no borders and/or political systems blocking the progress of knowledge. Knowledge will breakdown borders and diminish the need for political institutions. Knowledge is freedom 🕊️

    What if I said I could read it
    SomeOne might say bull
    What if I said my ancestry is versed in pictographs and oral history
    Ones ears might pick up
    What if I said it was my understanding of physics and access to vast amounts of knowledge that let me discover it
    And It has already been discovered. That is the reason some can’t decipher it or publish it
    What if I said it was an instruction of how three different people’s came together to share wisdom to combine it only to make a steam engine and electric engine with batteries to produce steam at pressure and ice from fire,rock,iron,copper where needed. Electricity to produce light and sound that could be used to communicate over large distances and it was discovered just before 46AD and 1583 and has been under control for over 2000 years with a loss of knowledge between 1200 and 1500 respectively
    Would that be enough
    Well look it up and decipher it for your self

      Egyptian people usually stole everything from ancient sites and
      tombs and sold it to travellers...
      Egypt was part of Ottoman Empire
      during this time.

    Extremely smart move of The British Museum to dedicate a special exhibition to the Rosetta Stone & the decoding of Hieroglyphs. Under the guise of the upcoming historic date. To underline their "legal" ownership of this Egyptian artifact.
    In the hopes that Egypt, scholars, and activist will stop asking The British Museum to return the Rosetta Stone to it's historic and original owners.

      The Muslim Egyptians right now are descendants of Muslim invaders of Egyptian land. They have no more right to the artifact than the French and British invaders.
      The Copts have the most legitimate claim to the Stone, for they preserve the legacy of old Egypt

      of course though, the Egyptian Museum isn't known that well for their standards, look at Tuntankhamun's beard story for an example. Another part is that Egypt is not exactly politically stable and in the last coup in 2014 civilians had to protect the museum itself from opportunistic robberies. And of course there's all the chance the Rosetta Stone would disappear in ignominy if not for Europeans finding it

      @Visassess That's bullshit. White people all through history have pillaged, raped, enslaved and appropriated anyone and anything they wanted. Things that never belonged to them in the first place. Now that they claim to be "civilized", if those VICTIMS' descendants want them back, they should at least _pretend_ to have enough integrity to do the right thing. The British Museum, the Royal family's collection, The Smithsonian and The MET in America, The Ethnologisches Museum in Berlin, The Musée Quai Branly in Paris and 100's more, ALL dumpster fires of morality.

    Champollion couldn't really decipher the hieroglyphs, because he didn't know Albanian Language and the symbolic algorithm.
    There is only a way to decipher the hieroglyphs. You need two instruments:
    (1) the symbolic algorithm, found by Albanian Genie Mr. Petro Zheji and,
    (2) the Albanian Language.
    You just need to read the Book of Petro Zheji: "The mesianic role of the Albanian Language". Albanian is really the Cosmic Language, close to the symbols. She is the mother of all languages. Furthermore you have to read the Books: "Thoth spoke Albanian" by Giuseppe Catapano and "The Enigma" of Robert D'Angely.
    The old Sanskrit Language was in fact the Albanian Language. Sanskrit and Latin are dead languages, from the old languages is alive only the Albanian Language, it has strong roots. You find all the symbols on the albanian folkloric costumes too.
    The Greek Language is a very new language, has no roots, it can be easy deciphered through Albanian Language too. She has an absence of morphemes and needs some from Albanian Language. Most of the old population at that time in Epirus were Pelasgians/ Albanians. (after osmanic registers)
    Leibniz and others dreamed to create an universal language, but this is not possible, because the universal language - Albanian Language - exists.

      It's alright to come forth with hypothesis, but let me do some cross-check a bit of it:
      "Tokyo = Toka Jonë = Our Land"
      "Tokyo" 「東京」 is a new word, created in the past thousand year. It literally means "east capital city" in contrast with "Kyoto" 「京」which is just "capital city".
