It is very unlikely. Most Egyptians could not read or write so having hieroglyphs on the walls would be pointless. The homes of noblemen had walls painted with scenes of gardens, pools and water plants, but no hieroglyphs.
well the egyptians made that language themselves. they had to have some kind of communication back then. they didnt know english.

The Rosetta Stone. It contained Greek language and we know how to speak Greek.
For the same reason that bread, birds and plants were used. Hieroglyphs can be phonograms (sound-signs) using the consonants of the thing portrayed to indicate something else. Since hieroglyphs did not write vowels, the same sign could stand for many different words. For example the picture of a...
Ink was discovered in Egypt
Yes it was written by a group of priests
The archaeologist found the Rosetta Stone which helped them understand hieroglyphics.
There were many grades of priest, but they all wore white linen clothes and all removed all the hair from their heads, faces and bodies. Some wore white sandals and specific priests could wear the skin of a leopard or other big cat as a kind of cloak. See links below for images:
Priests, nobles, officials and royalty all learned to read and write, but scribes did the bulk of record-keeping on their behalf.
That would extremely difficult, even for an ancient Egyptian scribe. There were single-consonant signs often used for spelling out foreign names, but the Egyptian language had no "v" sound, so no sign representing it. Since vowels were not written and the v sound does not exist in the language, a...
it is so important because it gave people insight into ancient egyptian life and writing and heiroglyphs and all that good stuff.....
they were put in between the wrappings of the linens
Writing in English or more originally, the Phoenicians' way, was (and obviously still is) phonetic. Which is where we get the word 'phonetic' (from the ancient Phoenicians). Each letter represents a sound, which we piece together, forming a series of sounds, which ultimately have a meaning. ...

nobody knew what rosetta stone was in the egyptian days
Answer: The first answer is incorrect and gives a completely false idea of how hieroglyphs work. Some hieroglyphs are indeed pictograms, where a single sign stands for a whole word, but most are phonograms (sound-signs). Pictograms represent a tiny proportion of the total number of signs. Only...
They used hieorglyphs because thats how the ancient Egyptions communitcated without that they wouldn't know what people where writing. Like when they would write a story they would use hieorglyphs.

Te artifact that helpe scholars decipher hieroglyphics is called" Rosetta Stone".
I guess you mean the word written with either the crested ibis and the semicircular loaf ( ax + t = axt ) or with a sun disc nestled in a valley between mountains ( axt ), or sometimes a combination of these signs. The word axt means horizon, often in the sense of a place of mystery where...

they used the world around them to come up with symbols
They use pictures we don't. They write in hieroglyphics we write in english.
You are clearly influenced by learning the English alphabet, where none of the names of letters has anything to do with the English language. In hieroglyphs there was usually a very close relationship between a sign and a sound-value derived from a word in the language. For example the picture of...
the french found it but then it was stolen by the britons and it isnow in the london museum
because if they just communicated in words they wouldn't be able to talk from long distances. (also i love this boldness and font!) : )
They both use symbols in the place of words. and Egyptian writing uses more pictures.

a paper made of the plant papyrus.
Jean-Francois Champollion unlocked the hieroglyphics in 1821-22. (Thomas Young was his fellow researcher)
There are three languages on it. 1) Hieroglyphics 2) Demotic 3) Greek

Rosetta Stone is a great language learning source. Like all studies, however, it requires much practice. The only problem I can see, and onlt for some, might be the cost.
Why do we use "A B C D", etc? We've developed our alphabet from a melting pot of cultures and languages. In their stage of alphabetic development (being one of the first major civilizations in the region), the most recognizable symbols were probably their religious icons and from their natural...
