Egyptology is the study of the culture, language, art and literature of the ancient Egyptians. Modern Egyptology started in 1799 with the advent of Napoleon Bonaparte, who not only brought his army, but also a team of scholars. These scholars copied down inscriptions and sketched the various monuments, motivating many Europeans to study ancient Egypt. However, the world's study of Egyptology was limited until the deciphering of the Rosetta Stone, which was discovered in 1799 by Napoleon's soldiers.
