Step into your time machine and travel back to ancient Egypt. Explore the fascinating Middle Egyptian language from 4000 years ago. This is (or, should we say, was) a real language, with its own vocabulary, grammar, and — of course — writing system. It’s much more than just writing your name in hieroglyphics. When you get the chance to travel to Egypt (or at least to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts), you’ll be able to astonish everyone by reading some of the inscriptions!
