Can anyone tell me where can I learn that online or recommend a good book to learn at least some basic stuff? Thanks in advance

BTW I wasn't sure where to post this thread, so mods feel free to move it to a more appropriate place.

I have been thinking the same thing,

For all we know the people who say they have deciphered the symbols, are wrong and not telling us the truth.

Agree Op. I would also like to learn, and translate hieroglyphics. Too bad there isn't any online courses, that you can take, to my knowledge. It must be awesome, to just look at a giant monolith, and be able to decipher it...... I also would like to learn Inca, and Mayan.

Yup there are many resources on the web. Some university may have an open course (some of this more obscure subjects are often open to non students due to general lack of interest, you should look into that also).

See also Development of hieroglyphic writing part of the Ancient Egyptian Monuments Project at Wikiversityand you can even start a book on the subject (the best way to acquire learning and understanding is to write what you learn and even teach it) on Wikibooks (there are already some interesting projects there related to this type of subject matter and lots of stub waiting for voluntarism, like Mythology even a stub about the The Voynich Manuscript).

Since the content is freely licensed on these projects you can even use it as a precursor for a series of threads on ATS on some subject that the community would be interested.

I am sure Wallis Budge's classic books are online, all of them.
There's no better place to start.
