Overview

This is number 5 in the series of Learn Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Each eBook in the series can be studied independently of the other. But for a better understanding of the hieroglyphs each title in the series teaches you a different aspect that will enhance your comprehension of the hieroglyphs.
THE HIEROGLYPH SIGN LIST
For ease of identification, Sir Alan Gardiner created a classification system for hundreds of the more common hieroglyphs. He listed them into easily identifiable groups and his system has become the standard classification system used by Hieroglyph scholars today. To reiterate he only listed the more common hieroglyphs but we have refined his system and added hundreds of their variations for a total of over 2000 hieroglyphs!
HIEROGLYPH CLASSIFICATIONS
