"Kemet" Written in the Kemetian Language:

The crocodile scales represent "k", the owl "m", and the bread is "t". The crossroads inform the reader that this is a place. Therefore, it reads "K-m-t". We only get so much in glyphs; the pronunciation "Kemet" is a guess.

Kemet

Kemet was an ancient nation located above what was once Nubia (both are in what is now known as Egypt). It housed one of the wonders of the ancient world, and many other fantastic things. Not so long ago, I took a course on ancient Egypt offered by the 'University of Pennsylvania' (I earned an 'A+' in that class). I am currently studying at 'Towson University' where I am taking another class wherein we have learned more of that Kemet of some of our forefathers. Ever since I was a young child, I have been researching this fascinating area. One day I hope to visit that place where our ancestor (the queen Scotia) once set her lovely feet.
