Since the decipherment of Hieroglyphs in 1822 the discipline of Egyptology has been transformed, we can read papyri, stela, tomb and temple walls and build a real understanding of Pharaonic Egypt.  This course, aimed at absolute beginners, will introduce Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs from first concepts, discussing core concepts and presenting common signs, and supporting the reading of key pieces of information from ancient sources such as kings and gods names.  The course will focus on the material from Chapters 1 and 2 of 'How to read Egyptian Hieroglyphs' by Collier and Manley.

This course will be delivered online.
