9-8-2016 What a Name!

The name of the Pharaoh
was always written inside a circle/oval.
This is King Tut's name.
As you start to look at the hieroglyphs
inscribed on the inside and outside of each burial chamber
and coffin/sarcophagus
you can see his name over and over again
telling his life story.
Can you find his name in some of these pictures?




After the Rosetta Stone finally cracked the code
for translating the hieroglyphs
historians could finally piece together
the things about which the hieroglyphs spoke.

What would your name look like in hieroglyphs?
Don't forget to put a circle/oval around it!
