I've had a postcard of the Rosetta stone for years on my desk at work, it's an ironic reminder that often my job is to translate customer requisites into development tasks ;) It's amazing that that tiny thing was the key to decode an entire culture. Although it's arguable whether the stone along with whole facades of buildings (:P) should be returned to their original countries, I'm quite happy I got to see it in a friendly place ;))
Yes, this is the rosetta stone - pretty amazing. The British Museum is still hoarding it along with the Elgin marbles and a many boatloads of other stuff they managed to carry off in the name of science and culture :)
