1: Nicholas Careaga Mr. Lovallo Global Studies 9 14 November 2012 Rosetta Stone The Rosetta Stone is a stone with writing on it in two languages. There’s Egyptian and Greek. The Rosetta Stone has three different scripts on it. The first was hieroglyphic which was used for religious documents. The second was the usual script in Egypt which was demotic. The third was the language of the rulers of Egypt which was Greek. The Rosetta Stone was created in 196 B.C. and founded in 1799 by French soldiers. It was found in a small village in the Delta called Rosetta (Rashid). That’s how the stone got its name. Many people tried deciphering the stone but it was too difficult. In 1822 Jean-Franois Champollion deciphered the hieroglyphs. The Rosetta Stone was one of the keys to unlocking the secrets of the Ancient Egyptian writing.

3: The great pyramids of Giza were built for pharaoh Khufu. They were built because Khufu wanted to buried in a very huge structure. A bunch of farmers built these pyramids because it was flooding season for the Nile. So there fields were underwater. The process for building these pyramids started with them measuring the outline of the pyramid in the sand. Then from large quarries near by, they cut large blocks of stone.

11: Seph Torralba Mr. Lovallo Global 9 Egyptian Newsletter Obituary Queen Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt dies at the age of 50 Queen Hatshepsut, Egypt's beloved queen, has died due to mysterious causes. Queen Hatshepsut. During her glorious reign had kept peace between other countries and provided us with a peaceful life. Hatshepsut blessed us with beautiful architectural marvels, many consisting of temples and public works. Daughter of her predecessor Thutmose the first, she was supposedly chosen by her father over his two sons, according to her, which helped her gain a strong following in her pursuit of the throne. Among some of her major accomplishments were the re-establishment of trade routes and networks which were disrupted by the Hyksos reign over Egypt. Hatshepsut will be forever remembered by the people of Egypt and other World leaders alike as a dominating and a charismatic female ruler.


13: Brandon Aguayo Mr. Lovallo Global Studies 14 November 2012 Riots Erupt In Egypt Each class in Egypt is having their own hardships because of what is being put on by the Pharaoh. Family classes such as merchants, farmers, and even craftsmen are revolting against demands put on by the Pharaoh. These three sections make up the working class of Egypt. The rest are either noblemen, scribes or the royal family. Farmers are the ones who seemed the most likely to revolt because of the fact that they have had hard times with their tax payments. They have both good and bad years. On their good years they are able to give their portions to the temple. The problem is in the lean years when they are unable to meet their requirement, otherwise they are okay. Merchants were also the same case as that of the farmers only that they specialize in trading goods. Their problem is most likely that they are being treated to poor trading goods for their items. Craftsmen are most likely having the issue that they are not getting their deserved payment for their goods. They may also have the issue that they are going out of business because of the trading goods the merchants are bringing. Although they have their own issues that are not related at all they are all united by one common fact. That fact is that they are tired that the Pharaoh and the ruling family of Egypt have placed upon the working class of Egypt. This common fact is what has given birth to the riots.
