Found in 1799 on the west bank of the Nile by Napoleon’s French soldiers, this 1,700 pound fragment of an ancient slab gave up the clues that ultimately cracked the code to hieroglyphics some 23 years later in 1822 – unlocking the secrets of ancient Egypt.
Perhaps one of the most important finds in the past three centuries…yet hardly anyone knows about it.
Anyone interested in the fields of archaeology, Egyptology, cryptology, writing, publishing, geology, science, mathematics, translation work and/or languages understands the significance of this famous artifact — a contemporary metaphor for problem-solving.
Dr. Freeman will talk about the Freeman Institute’s development of a 5,000-sq.-ft. traveling exhibit about the dramatic history surrounding the Rosetta Stone, language/culture and problem solving – www.RosettaZone.com
