 Ridley Scott’s Biblical Epic Exodus

I’ve always admired Ridley Scott’s integrity as a film director but check this out – in his latest film ‘Exodus’ he has populated ancient Egypt with white Anglo Saxons. I could understand such ning-com-poopery from a lesser artist of the big screen but find it incomprehensible from Ridley Scott. What do you think?


More than 1000 glyphs including 400 Egyptian word examples and over 500 hieroglyphs from the Gardiner list. The history of Egyptian writing and mathematics, the use of the different types of symbols, how to write your name, how to recognize kings names and the story of the scribe.

All content can be printed including typewriter and calculator functions. There are also navagation and search text functions. You can quickly write names and short secret messages and then select print from the menu.
