hieroglyphs. Focusing on the funerary symbols one would be likely to see in Egypt or at a museum, and illustrated with hieroglyphs that are on display in the British Museum (drawn by Richard Parkinson, curator in the Department of Egyptian
Antiquities at the British Museum), How to Read Egyptian
Hieroglyphs makes possible a deeper appreciation not just of museum displays but of the Egyptian
culture that used this writing system.
