Description

"When Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Egypt in 1798, he surprised people by bringing scientists as well as soldiers. His researchers made one of the most important finds in history--the Rosetta Stone, the key to reading Egyptian hieroglyphs. However, the Rosetta Stone didn't stay in French possession for long. The British seized it during a fight with Napoleon's troops, and the stone ended up in the British museum. Cahill insiders suspect the soldiers were looking for an ancient object that, according to Cahill legend, contained a secret message from Katherine Cahill. Was it the Rosetta Stone? Or is the story simply a Cahill myth? Collect all the cards in this combination to unlock a Clue."
