I am wondering if I need to have one on my desk?
I can get this exact replica made of resin on Ebay. AND. IT comes from Egypt.
The stone was discovered by Napoleon's Army when they invaded Egypt.
Wait, that sounded snippy.
An actual gathering of French archeologists took place to further the discoveries of the Egyptian realm after Napoleon invaded Egypt.
French Army engineer Captain Pierre-François Bouchard discovered the stone sometime in mid-July 1799 near the Egyptian port city of Rosetta.
The Rosetta Stone ought to be recognized, and therefore so should Napoleon, as the most important of all the Egyptian finds. Even bigger than the various tumbs and Pharoahs.
Because the stone unlocked the hyroglyifics.
It made it possisble to actually "read" what was written. A primer so to speak.
The stone was stolen by the British when they invaded Egypt a few years later and they have displayed it ever since. (They did lend it to the Louvre for a special exhibit in Paris in 1972.)
I am in favour of returning it to Egypt.
If Napoleon couldn't have it….why should they?
