I've not heard this addressed. Just how did the Egyptians carve these Hieroglyphs without making mistakes ? If you look at some of the glyphs theres no margin for error if a mistake was made entire walls , statues , obelisk would have to be replaced . They had to have some sort of stencils or programable carvers - Has anyone come up with a theory on this subject?

They aren't EXACTLY the same. There is individual variation. It's the same wit hand written manuscripts.

I got terrible grades in penmanship but my teachers could read what I wrote.

True at that but even individual projects if they messed up a birds beak they would have to start over and some of those are pretty thin even defects in the stone could cause mistake's to happen .

Get it right or have your life substituted with someone else?

Practice makes perfection?

So not much has changed since the times ancient Egypt really in that respect anyway.

Chances are its technology that's replacing people these days all the same.

Well you're lucky then....one of my teachers in high school used to ask my little sister to read my work for him because he couldn't...he would announce this loudly to the class as he handed me my work back.

Actually, some of the Egyptian hieroglyphs found have been pretty crude.

What we believe they did is a scribe would use a red pigment to draw the hieroglyph and a worker came after to chisel it out with a copper chisel and a wooden mallet.

We assume that because of the traces of red pigment we have found in the carved hieroglyph.

Some hieroglyphs have a lot better definition than others because all artists are not the same.

And when you are a king you end up getting the best of the artists.

For instance...



There is no perfection here at all.

So no conspiracy theory there... if you were looking for one, start with the granite boxes and how they could have possibly been made.

Its still standing intact for all the world to see after 1000s of years.

Depends on how one defines perfection, but in my book, that's pretty close.

Certainly served it's purpose, whatever that may be, and then some.

Motivation, Those who made mistakes were killed? Ha,ha

I imagine that in those days the habit of precision was practiced more, they had more time and less distractions so the expectation were high. Plus the sheer fact that you get one shot at this would have made for a vigorous culling of talented people, Sorting through people’s with a track record of precise work.

Um.. that's because they carved them in stone?

You can learn to read them online, btw.. there are free courses offered.

What no Google translate??? LoL

Plenty of things have been carved in stone throughout recorded history that no longer exist down to religious madness or simple natural disaster.

These still do through and that in itself is rather an achievement.

Sort of.
We know a lot about the accounting practices of the Sumerians, for example.

Yes, they did seem to have been rather obsessed with accounts.

Its the other areas of there everyday lives and historical accounts that remain somewhat of a mystery.

Then again my understanding is that there are literally 1000s, possibly 100,000s of Sumerian tablets that remain to be translated lying around in various museums and sites across the globe.
