Scribes used pictures not letters to write hieroglyphics and alot of people said it was a good form of writting. The egyptians started using hieroglyphics in 3000 BC. There were thousands of symbols in hieroglyphics. Hieroglyphics is represented in sounds like letters and whole words. A scribe is a person that writes hieroglyphics and they also need alot of years of education and practise. Some kids start training to be a scribe by the age of seven or six. It was also a good job in Ancient Egypt and the structure of hieroglyphics is difficult to work out.
The writting on the rosetta stone has two languages on it which are egyptain and Greek. They also used three scripts were Hieroglyphics, Demotic and Greek. There are three scripts because when it was written three were used in Egypt. The first hieroglyphic script was used for important and religious stuff. The second script was demotic, it was a common one in Egypt. The third script ws Greek and was the language of rulers.
