Thanks for sharing this, I never would have known!


Personally, I would prefer E. Wallis Budge’s book of learning Egyptian hieroglyphics. He is old school, but I am comfortable with his works. Although modern Egyptologists tend to look down on him, and still like his books and translations.


ERRATUM: I still like his (Budge) books and translations.


I checked out the site. I was not impressed. If there anything I hate it’s cartoon characters explaining things to me. This site might fine for kids, but that’s about it. Who wants a birthday greeting written in Hieroglyphs? Lame.
