Learn any language with Rossetta stone!
This is more than just a tagline — the Rossetta stone was actually a black granite stone found by the city of Rosetta en Egypt.
This rock had engraved the same text written in both Greek and Egyptian. This was a MAJOR breakthrough for scientists who were now able to finally translate Egyptian hieroglyphics.
It was discovered by a Frenchman named Bouchard in August 1799. After the French surrender of Egypt in 1801, it passed into British hands and is now in the British Museum in London.
