Egyptian Hieroglyphs Series

Ancient Middle EastBeginning Languages
Precepted by Shawn Gaffney.
The Hieroglyphics series will present students with a basic understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs, grammar, and knowledge about how to proceed with further study. In this series of 4 modules, we will discuss how to translate steles that you are likely to encounter in museums, as well as their cultural significance. As student progress, the class will tackle more complex translation. Each one-month module builds on the previous one, so students ready to learn Hieroglyphics will communicate with our Director and Professor Gaffney to make the right placement for everyone.

Required Texts

Optional: Collier and Manley's How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs: A Step-by-Step Guide to Teach Yourself (2003). You can find it new or used on Amazon (or elsewhere) for sometimes as cheap as $8 used.
