Preliminary discussion about the Ancient Egyptian language

A brief general introduction to some interesting things about Ancient Egyptian language, with some thoughts on and anecdotes about Egyptian culture and history; followed by discussion or other activities.

Did you know there are actually 4 different writing scripts used for Ancient Egyptian, hieroglyphs being the more rare, primarily religious script, and last learned by student scribes? Do you know what the Egyptian symbols on the portal graphic used for the technical libri mean and where they come from? Did you know that ancient Egyptian art can often be read as words?
