Hieroglyphics were engraved on the Rosetta Stone, which was discovered by a group of archaeologists near the end of the Baroque period.

Answer: Nobody "discovered" hieroglyphs, since they have been visible since ancient times on the walls of palaces, temples, monuments and tombs across the whole of Egypt. Since they were not lost, they did not need to be discovered.
