Today we are discussing the Rosetta Stone: the key to understanding ancient Egypt.  Students will decipher codes, watch a fascinating documentary, and begin work on their very own Rosetta Stones that will be written in Cuneiform (the Mesopotamians), hieroglyphics (the ancient Egyptians), and English (us of course).
