I would rate the movie 4 stars.

The movie was very interesting and informed me a lot on the history of the Rosetta Stone. It was written in 3 languages: Greek, Egyptian, and demotic scripture. For years and years, people kept trying to find the meaning of the symbols. Part was easier to read than the other. Over time, individual letters or symbols were discovered, which made it easier to figure out. Several people spent years trying to put the pieces of this puzzle together. It was found in 1799 by French soldiers who were taking arts of stone to build stone walls for a fort. It was religious writing written by priests from the B.C.
