The Gift of River Nile –  Soldiers in Napoleon’s army discovered the Rosetta Stone in 1799 while digging the foundations of an addition to a fort near the town of el-Rashid (Rosetta). Exhibited in the British Museum since 1802, the Rosetta Stone was the key to unlocking the ability to read and translate ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. The Stone contains the same decree in three different scripts, and scholars were able to use the Greek and Egyptian Demotic sections to decipher the ancient hieroglyphs. The text contains a decree passed by priests in 196 BC to honour King Ptolemy V for his services to Egypt. (British Museum)
