Denseman on the Rattis

Formerly known as the Widmann Blog



In Turin, I spent a couple of hours visiting the Egyptian Museum, the largest outside Egypt (that is, better that the British Museum).

It was a fantastic experience – it was so huge and so comprehensive that I got a strong feeling of a lost world, and I left impressed and depressed.

Perhaps the most depressing bit was the huge amounts of Egyptian texts in hieroglyphics. If only I had studied a bit of Egyptian with Tine and Rasmus when I was still at university, I might have been able to understand a bit… 🙁

  • Marcel would love that!

  • What would he love? Going to the museum in Turin, or learning to read Egyptian, or both? If the latter, I can teach him it – I have a very good coursebook (the one they used at my university).
