Part 3

‚Äč Early the next day they ate breakfast in the big tent and cleaned up after breakfast very quickly and then dressed in the typical clothing that archaeologist wear. She understood the hat and net to keep the sand from getting into their eyes. They atarted their very fine brushing the stone wall and ran into a message and Dr. Johansburg called in the Egyptian museum curator to decipher any Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Kathy had done more homework than the rest of the thrill seekers and asked her grandfather if she culd catch her group up that subject. She started off on showing the slides of Egyptian Hieroglyphic Alphabet.and told the group that Hieroglyphs are written in rows or colums and it is read both ways left to right or right to left and is distinguish which way the text is to be read by the way the human or animal figure always faces toward the beginning of the line. Also the upper symbols are read before the lower ones. Hieroglphs were known by the Egyptians as the words of God. It was easierto read than to speak the laungage due to the Alphabetic signs represent single sound and unfortunity the Egyptians took most vowels for granted and did not represent such as e or v. After her lecture she told them that her grandfather called them amateur archaeologist but in reality they were pot hunters. After her lecture her grandfather was very plased with her and said it was well done.
