More About This Product

Imagine a time when there was no paper in the world. That was the case thousands of years ago, until the ancient Egyptians invented the processing of Cyperous Papyrus marsh plant into papyrus sheets.

Now you have the chance to feel the excitement experienced by the ancient Egyptians when they discovered a way to transport the written word. Prior to that time, all writing was engraved on heavy stones and rocks which were immobile. This discovery led humans to be able to send letters and read books!
