Hieroglyphics are the written language
 of the Aneint Egyptians.

 Oringinaly, the Egyptians used pictures
to repersent words and/or ideas.

 But as time went on, the language
needed to grow and change.

 So, instead of inventing new
pictures for the words/ideas,

 they combined the hierogyphics
together, to make the new words.


Hieroglyphics weren't just "a picture alphabet", 
it was also a sound alphabet.

After  a while, the Egyptians began to put
 sounds together to make words.

The Egyptians had hundreds of different pictures,
 simlar to to our twenty-six letter alphabet.

But the Egyptians didn't just write left to right, they also wrote;
right to left, top to bottom, and bottom to top.

 Also, they Egyptians had no
 hireoglyph for the letters C,U,V, and X.

 For U, you can you can use the hieroglyph for W.
 For V, use F's hieroglyphs.

 For C, you could use either K or S's hoeroglyph.
For X, put K and S's hierogylphs together.
