Transcript: Hieroglyphics Hieroglyphics were used not only for economic reasons like cuneiform. Early Egyptian hieroglyphs were created for economic trade recording, calendrics, politcal and environmental recording and largely for religous intentions. The ancient Egyptian language,Hieroglyphics, changed the means by which we communicate. It introduced the visual aspect of language. Since hieroglyphics were very time consuming to create, the Egyptians developed a simpler, cursive language called hieratic. The First Written Language Hierogylphics consisted of pictograms and ideograms that depicted events, ideas, and feelings of life. This novel discovery Changed language from just sounds to now include shapes. Cuneiform is commonly considered as the first written language, but because of it's abstract and underdeveloped structure it shouldn't be. Megan Robinson Soham Bose Amy Stewart Tyler Walker Hayley Drosky The Egyptian Hieroglyphics were much more developed than the Wedge-Shaped script, cuneiform. The Semantic workers in Egypt created the first alphabet, made up of 22 Hieroglphs, to communicate economically. The Egyptians considered their "sacred writings" to be a gift from the gods. This gift of language was in the form of pictures and images. Hieroglyphics were created and used in early 3000BC by the upper-class, royalty and priests. They told stories and recorded the rich history of ancient Egypt. Hieroglyphics set the basis for a numerous oral languages, including Greco-Roman, Arabic, Hebrew, and a various amount of other eastern African languages. Egyptian Hieroglphics should be considered the first wriiten language because of it's diverse use, development of the first alphabet, creation of a usable system, and effect on the spread of written languages.

Transcript: There are two steps in mummification:enbalming and wrapping. EMBALMING: One of the embalmer's men makes a cut in the left side of the body and removes many of the internal organs. It is important to remove these because they are the first part of the body to decompose. The liver, lungs, stomach and intestines are washed and packed in natron which will dry them out. The heart is not taken out of the body because it is the centre of intelligence and feeling and the man will need it in the afterlife. A long hook is used to smash the brain and pull it out through the nose. The Tombs: The mummified bodies would be placed deep in a set of confusing tunnels, to try to keep the body away from tomb robbers. They would be buried with everything needed for the after life including various rooms, such as bathrooms. Pharaohs: Pharaohs ran the cities. They were looked at as more than human: as gods. Many spent their lives trying to come up with the perfect tomb designs: the pyramids. THANKS FOR WATCHING!
