Abstract:

In July 1799, in the middle of the French Campaign in Egypt and Syria, the French soldiers of Lieutenant Bouchard discover by chance at Rosetta a large black stone. This stone, also known as the "Rosetta Stone", is in fact the fragment of a stele engraved in honor of King Ptolemy V, including three writing systems: Greek, Demotic and hieroglyphic. Soon, the scientists of the expedition record the stone's incriptions, before it is taken from them by the English on their return to France. On September 14, 1822, with the help of the precious copies of the Rosetta stone inscriptions and thanks to his genius intuition, Jean-François Champollion manages to unravel the mystery of the hieroglyphs.
