Subject: Hieroglyphs for Travelers
The Archaeological Institute of America, San Diego Society is
offering a FREE copy of the new book Hieroglyphs for Travelers by Thomas F.
Mudloff and Ronald E. Fellows, to all participants in our tour of Egypt
February 5-19, 2000.
Travelers to Egypt stand in awe as they view the magnificent temples,
tombs, and monuments. These ancient structures are covered with
hieroglyphic writing that records the names of the pharaohs, their queens,
their nobles, their gods, and their adventures. There are magical
formulas and curses that few tourists can read or understand.
NOW YOU CAN!
Although the complete study of the hieroglyphic writing is the work
of a lifetime, Hieroglyphs for Travelers teaches you to translate the names,
certain sign groups and funerary formulas directly into English...in
minutes. It is a field guide prepared by Egyptologists for travelers.
Imagine the thrill of, not only seeing, but seeing and understanding. You
will read the glyphs on Hatshepsut's obelisk at Koranic, read an inscription
on Tutankhamon's alabaster cup in the Cairo Museum, and yes, read the curse
in the Tomb of Idu...then enter, if you dare.
But there's more: Hieroglyphs for Travelers is also an
indispensable guide to ancient Egypt that directs you to its enchanting
secrets--site by site.
Hieroglyphs for Travelers is scheduled for publication this month,
September 1999. ISBN 0-939968-02-9, Library of Congress Card Number
