Middle Egyptian (Egyptian Hieroglyphs) is the classic form of the language of ancient Egypt. It was in common, everyday use in Egypt from about 2100-1600 BCE. After this time, Middle Egyptian continued to be used for literary and religious texts, as well as inscriptions on buildings and stone monuments, for nearly 2000 years. Much of the surviving textual material from ancient Egypt is written in Middle Egyptian.

In this course, students will learn to read and understand the hieroglyphic signs, vocabulary, and grammar of ancient Middle Egyptian. Exercises draw on authentic biographical, historical, religious and literary texts.

Intended Audience:

No Prerequisites. Although this course is the first of a two-part sequence in Middle Egyptian, it can also be taken as a stand-alone class.
