Hieroglyph Challenge

Home > Event > Hieroglyph Challenge

Did you know that Brunel’s original design for the bridge was decorated with cast-iron hieroglyphs that would tell the story of its construction?

Unfortunately, this part of the design was never completed. Cast-iron was very expensive and they didn’t have enough money.

Write a story on the outline of the tower in hieroglyphs. Use this alphabet as a guide. There are lots of images of hieroglyphs on the internet to look at too - Brunel even made up some of his own.
