Learn Egyptian Hieroglyphs by Penn Museum

For around 3,000 years, the ancient Egyptians used a writing system known to us today as Egyptian Hieroglyphs. What we see as pictures of animals and shapes are part of a complex writing system the ancient Egyptians used to communicate between each other and even to their gods. In this workshop we will learn how the ancient Egyptians used pictures, sounds, and something called determinitives to write monumental inscriptions as well as administrative, legal, mathematical, medical, and literary texts. Even love poems! Together, we will engage with one of the world's first written languages and end with a fun activity of writing our names in hieroglyphs. Recommended materials: Paper and writing utensils

Audience: School-aged and Families
Date: July 22, 2020
Time: 11am EST
