A picture paints a thousand words...

I was looking for a good picture of me on my laptop, though I have a number I don't think any of them are suitable, so I will just have to go with this for now. Do you know what it is...

The Rosetta Stone.
There is one in the British Museum (I think), and more than one million of others in Cairo ;-)

If I'm not mistaken, that's the Rosetta stone, which was so instrumental in unlocking the language of hieroglyphics. It had the same passage of text written in three different languages.
