Summary
Intended for the general reader, this title marks the path of the Rosetta Stone from its discovery by Napoleonic engineers in 1799 through its interpretation in the early nineteenth century. A brief epilogue describes the current repatriation request to the British by the Egyptian government, and among the appendices is the translation of the writing of the Stone. With its fluid writing this book will find favor with members of the public looking to increase their knowledge of the topic, though readers should be warned that the book is filled with more military history of the Napoleonic era than Egyptian history.
