This ruler is clearly marked in cm, mm and inches so is completely functional in that respect, but it also has very clear images of some hieroglyphics. Each image is in vivid colour with the background a cream colour, which is supposed to mimic papyrus I presume. It covers the alphabet of A-Z but also certain sounds, such as, CH..KH...SH...SCH...TH...TCH...OU. On the reverse of the ruler is a brief description of what hieroglyphics are and then below that is a list of important dates starting at 3100-2950BC and goes up to modern times. There are 13 dates and related information on the reverse of the ruler. This is a brilliant item at a reasonable price that will really help with any Ancient Egyptian project.
