Welcome to Egypt! My friends and I are scribes. We will tell you about our lives!
Scribes were educated for years, because they had to learn over 700 hieroglyphs.
I don't get much sleep!
Scribes had to study for a long time, sometimes from sunrise to sunset.
I write on a board on my lap with papyrus on it.
This is our government record! I wrote some of it.
Most people say that only men were scribes, but some evidence states that some doctors were women, and were trained as scribes so that they could read medical texts. My evidence for this is at www.ancientegypt.co.uk/writing/explore/scribe
