The Rosetta Stone is a perfect book for those just starting out in the world of historical linguistics. Telling the story of the stone’s discovery, the arguments that ensued concerning its ownership, and the decoding of the hieroglyphs by warring researchers, it takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Ancient Egypt to modern England. Definitely worth reading.
