Forster, one of the six preachers of the Cathedral of Canterbury, and rector of Stisted, Essex, expounds on the interrelatedness of knowledge transmitted through a common ancient Egyptian language source.

The letters are organized by chart divided by language and type of letter. For example, you can see A, and scroll your eyes across the page to see all the various forms of the letter A, from every civilization from Babylonian to Celtiberian.
