Egyptian Civilization and Hieroglyphics 

The second lecture in the Languages and Literatures lecture series presented by Wesley Cecil   PhD at Peninsula College. This lecture explores the 3,000 year history of Egypt, focusing on the development of Hieroglyphics and the lasting influence of Egyptian ideas.  NOTE: In the lecture I erroneously state that Jean-François Champollion was in Egypt with Napoleon. He did not go to Egypt until a later archaeological expedition. This is what happens when you lecture without notes.
