7th Grade S.S. Ancient Egypt Unit Flashcards 19,21&23

Rosetta Stone It's black&possibly basalt slab. It has three languages(Greek, demotic& hieroglyphs) that all say the same thing on it. Jean-Francois Champollion translated the Rosetta Stone. It stated the generosity of Pharaoh Ptolemy V Epiphanes& the siege of Lycopolis
Rosetta Stone HC It helped modern humans discover how to read hieroglyphics. The British Museum housed the Rosetta Stone after 1802. In 1917-1919 it was temporarily moved underground to prevent possible bomb damage from World War I.
Hieroglyphics These are one of the two systems Egyptians used for writing. It was used mainly for royal proclamations. There are over 700 of them which scribes had to go to school for many years to learn. You would read them from whichever way the _______ were looking.
Hieroglyphics HC One of the three languages on the Rosetta stone was _____________. We figure out how to read them because all the three languages said the same thing.
S of SWAGSTR The first "s" of SWAGSTR is for stable food supply. We know that Egyptians had a stable food supply because they were able to specialize. There were jobs such as pharaohs, artisans, scribes, government officials, and priests.
W of SWAGSTR It stands for written language. Egyptians had two types of languages, demotic and hieroglyphics. Demotic was for everyday use, while hieroglyphics were for royal proclamations. Scribes had to go to school for many years to learn over 700 hieroglyphics.
A of SWAGSTR The "a" stands for the arts. Pharaohs had many statues of them made and many of them also had some sort of tomb. For example, Senusret, who was the "Patron of the Arts" had the White Chapel built. Jewelry was also made and so was literature was written.
G of SWAGSTR The "g" of SWAGSTR stands for a government. The Egyptians had a monarchy government, with a pharaoh in charge of the community. Some pharaohs included Pharaoh Khufu, Pharaoh Hatshepsut, Pharaoh Tutankhamun, and many more.
S #2 of SWAGSTR The second "s" stands for a social structure. We know that Egyptians had a social structure with a pharaoh on top, then government officials. The third level of the social pyramid was priests followed by scribes, then artisans, and finally peasants.
T of SWAGSTR The "t" stands for technology. Egyptians invented the 365 day calendar, papyrus for writing on (ex. the Book of the Dead), bronze chisels, and boats.
R of SWAGSTR The "r" stands for religion. We know that the Egyptians had a polytheistic religion although Akhenaten tried to convert it to be monotheistic. They believed in an afterlife. They had a mummification process with many steps including the canopic jars.
