Looking at photos from a 2008 visit to the British Museum. Wild to think how the Rosetta Stone was already 1600yrs old when it was dumped as rubble in fortifications in the late 1400s, which led to its accidental discovery 300 years later and unlocking the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic language.

A large black stone with a smooth front surface but rough edges where it’s been broken. There are three different languages carved on the stone. It’s inside a glass case and the reflections of people viewing it are visible in the glass.
