Hey Erin I was wondering if you could help me learn more about hieroglyphics!
Sure Gemma! Lets go to the coffee shop and I can tell you all about them!
So when were hieroglyphics first invented? Also were there different types?
Well they were first invented shortly before 3100 B.C. There were many different types and it really depended on where you lived and the time periods.
How do we know what these symbols meant?
A discovery called the Rosetta Stone helped the experts interpret what these hieroglyphs stood for. Because of this stone we could decipher what these pictures meant.

Well how can writing from a stone tell you about the writing on another stone?
The scientists studied the stones and found out which hieroglyphs equaled which Greek words.
Well the Rosetta Stone had the same message written in hieroglyphics and Greek, a language we know already.
Panel 2, Page 1, SEP #1-Asking Questions
Were there different types of measurements back then too?
Yes, for example there were cubits, palms, and digits. Cubits were your forearms measurement which is why it's not used today since everyone is different.
After learning about these hieroglyphics, I am going to visits some museums and read the hieroglyphs on these artifacts! Tonight i will find a hieroglyphics key online to bring tomorrow.
