In Search Of History: The Secrets Of The Rosetta Stone

For hundreds of years, the glorious history of ancient Egypt remained a mystery to the world, its secrets locked away in the baffling language of hieroglyphics.

However, in 1799, French troops near the Egyptian town of Rosetta discovered an ancient basalt slab that would prove to be key to unlocking Egypt's many mysteries. Carved in 196 BC, the Rosetta Stone bears a decree given by the Egyptian King Ptolemy V in three different scripts - hieroglyphics, Demotic Egyptian, and Greek. In this program, trace the work of many dedicated scholars who attempted to break the stone's code, and learn the story behind the brilliant Jean-François Champollion who finally made a breakthrough in 1824.

From the exciting discovery of the stone and the long struggle to understand its ancient writings to the birth of modern Egyptology, this is the fascinating saga of scholars' efforts to uncover the The Secrets Of The Rosetta Stone.
