Over the past several weeks I have been attending another course on learning to read Egyptian hieroglyphs. Once again organised by the fantastic Kemet Klub, this Wednesday evening brain teaser is taught by Maiken Mosleth King of Bristol University. The course began with a sedate introduction to the basic alphabet and various signs, then we moved swiftly on to writing complete words and transliteration. After a few fun transliteration exercises we began the grammatical aspect of the course: nouns, pronouns and articles; prepositions and non-verbal sentences, tenses and participles. Wednesday evenings have certainly been challenging!

Once again, I would like to thank the Kemet Klub for organising the event, and Maiken for her tuition.
